US: Propane shortage reported in the Midwest
"It will be reversed and transporting a different product, so they're not able to push as much product as they have historically." With the Midwest distribution system overloaded, trucks are waiting six-to-seven hours or longer at the terminal.
Suppliers are also forced to go outside the Midwest to secure propane. "A lot of them are having to run down to Kansas or Nebraska to bring product back up."
Governors in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Iowa have issued hours-of-service exemptions to facilitate propane movement. If the harvest continues to drag on, Lewis says the propane shortage could also be prolonged.
