Indiana offers to help propane users find fuel

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The state is offering to assist Indiana propane users who face drastically low supplies of the fuel.

A major shortage of the fuel on which millions of rural homeowners and businesses depend has come as temperatures have often dropped below zero in several states.

The U.S. Energy Information Association says the national average price for a gallon of propane in Indiana has soared to more than $4 the past two weeks, up from $2.96 the previous week.

The Indiana Attorney General's office says consumers whose propane tank's supply is at 10 percent or less and have trouble contacting their supplier, or can't find a different supplier, may the office for assistance at 1-800-382-5516.

The office says it will help customers resolve delivery issues by working with suppliers.
