When the temperatures drop, and they have dropped… propane is added to natural gas lines to keep the pressure up… another reason to cause a shortage…. And the major reason… Ethanol production…… yes, why else are farmers drying so much corn, and planting more and more…… another example how big government having involvement causes a mess! Maybe they can step up to the plate and put regulations on the propane industry.. they seem to be involved in everything else.
