Propane Shortage

The cold has also caused a propane shortage in many states according to the Propane Education and Research Council. Federal and State Officials are facilitating the shipment of propane in 30 states.

The problem, says the industry group, isn't supply but transporting the propane from where it is stored to where it is needed. The head of Mirabito Energy Products says local residents shouldn't be facing a crunch because there are a number of solid dealers in the area. He says a good dealer will have a plan and storage in place to keep propane available throughout the winter.

"Everyone is meeting the needs. It is very challenging out there but there's some things being done to hopefully take some pressure off of what's going on today. But the weather has been a big factor," said Joe Mirabito, CEO of Mirabito Energy Products.

Mirabito says customers should check with their supplier to make sure it has a plan to have access to propane throughout the winter.
