Propane Shortage

A propane shortage has hit the Midwest and it's causing a major problem for thousands of Hoosiers trying to keep their homes warm.

Indiana Propane Gas Association Executive Director Scot Imus says the industry is in crisis.

Industry experts estimate half a million people in rural Indiana heat their homes with propane and with supplies down, those people are seeing higher prices and are being warned to conserve.

Supplies are running low enough to prompt the governors of Michigan and Ohio to declare an emergency, which will allow drivers to travel more hours to ship propane from out-of-state.
