Deep freeze spikes propane prices

INDIANAPOLIS - The prolonged sub-zero temperatures are having an impact on propane prices.

Call 6 Investigator Rafael Sanchez received several calls from Hoosiers who were concerned about the price jump.

The U.S. Energy Department says propane supplies already were lower than normal before temperatures turned frigid.

Now, governors and regulators already have taken the rare step of loosening transportation rules for about 33 states in the South, Midwest and East. The move allows additional hours for truckers to make deliveries of propane.

State regulators want to hear from Hoosiers who think they are being overcharged for propane gas prices. If you're currently on budget billing or on a contract and are being forced to pay a higher price for propane, call the Indiana Consumer Protection Division at 800-382-5516 or click here .
