Propane Restrictions Due to High Demand

Local companies are seeing restrictions right now for propane.

Steve Demmer, president of Demmer Oil Company in Worthington, explains:

Unfortunately, this will have an effect on farmers trying to dry their corn.

Demmer say he’s never seen propane restrictions like this before.

State Senator Dan Zumbach says the propane supply is there – it’s just not keeping up with the demand.

As a farmer from Ryan, Zumbach knows the struggle himself.

And as a legislator, he says there was something he was able to do to help

Zumbach is encouraging farmers to be patient.
