A tight supply of propane is causing
concerns for rural Ohio residents who use the fuel to heat their homes, and the
governor has relaxed some delivery restrictions to help expedite propane gas
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1ePysTD ) reports propane availability is more
limited and prices are higher this year for several reasons, including
stretches of extreme cold that drained an already depleted supply. In response,
some dealers are postponing deliveries and focusing on consumers most in need.
The typical household that uses a
tank of propane for heating and cooking might have to pay over $1,500 to refill
it with the price of propane going up.

perfect storm of factors has driven up prices and tightened supplies. The storm began with a good growing season.

"He have a good supply and we're
not short on product, but we are having to go farther to get it," he says. "[We
go] as far as North Carolina, in fact, to pull product back to Ohio".
Industry experts say the price of
propane is expected to continue to rise in the short term but they predict
prices will level out as supplies catch up with demand.
