A PROPANE SHORTAGE IS PROMPTING A REGIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARATION THAT COVERS SEVEN STATES, INCLUDING ILLINOIS. 

 

STATE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE DIRECTOR JOHN SULLIVAN SAYS THE SHORTAGE IS MORE OF A DELIVERY PROBLEM…SO THIS DECLARATION EASES TRUCKING REGULATIONS.

 

 

SULLIVAN SAYS PROPANE JUST ISN’T GETTING TO ILLINOIS QUICKLY ENOUGH RIGHT NOW, BUT THAT THIS DECLARATION SHOULD HELP.

 

 

OTHER STATES AFFECTED BY THE EMERGENCY INCLUDE IOWA, MISSOURI AND WISCONSIN.

 

SUPPLIES ARE RUNNING LOW HERE IN PART DUE TO EARLY COLD TEMPERATURES AND FARMERS NEEDING MORE PROPANE TO DRY WET GRAIN.
