I have heard from a few people in the Bemidji area that the cost of Propane is on the rise because of a shortage of propane. The costs had been down for the past year or so but has steadily gone up since last fall. Prices haven’t doubled but it is close. What used to be $1.40 per gallon is now close to the $2.40 per gallon price.
For those of you who have a duel fuel system, possibly with electric and propane, it may be best to use more electric. Or, if someone is looking to add another heating system to their home, now may be a good time to look at alternative fuels. For more information, here is a couple of links to some other articles. http://www.parkrapidsenterprise.com/content/nationwide-propane-shortage-hits-park-rapids
