    I called my regular propane company ( Ferrellgas ) today to ask about the shortage and they said there was no shortage and they could get all that was needed. I ask what the price was and it was over $6.OO a gallon, then why is it at that price, not much of an expiation that was just the cost something about suppliers. Something is not right here. In stead of a minimum of 200 gals., it is now a minimum of $500.00 and that is just over 83 gals. WOW what’s up with that Ferrellgas, what are they trying to do,how are people going to afford that especially in these temps when it will be needed all the time.
