Unlike recent years, a propane shortage will likely not be an issue farmers must contend with this winter. The news is a pleasant surprise amidst high fuel costs and concerns over fertilizer availability. National Propane Gas Association President Steve Kaminski says many factors lead to optimism for the winter months.

Drier conditions across harvested acres mean less propane was used for grain drying. More farms have more storage these days with record yields, meaning less propane has to be moved in January when the weather becomes an issue. While availability shouldn’t be a concern, prices will be higher than in previous years, save for an extreme cold snap. Much of the Midwest is forecasted for higher-than-normal temperatures this winter.
