State Of Emergency with Minnesota Propane Prices
Governor Dayton has recently declared a state of emergency regarding propane gas supplies. Prices have nearly doubled since the start of the winter heating season. This has become a “perfect storm” of sorts regarding the lack of supply and rising prices with LP Gas.
Propane supply was low coming into the winter due to demand by corn farmers to dry their wet crops this year. That coupled with the artic blasts we have been receiving has caused demand for propane to go up. This has forced prices to rise quite a bit.
Dealers are being forced to send trucks as far as Texas to obtain gas for their customers. The costs involved in bring those supplies here will also cause prices to rise.
