In anticipation of the cold and snow, Ohio Gov. John Kasich declared an energy emergency focused on expediting propane GAS shipments in order to mitigate tight supplies.
His declaration permits propane shippers from other states to drive more hours, which “will help get propane companies resupplied so Ohioans who use propane to heat their homes can stay warm,” Kasich said. …
Kasich followed the lead of officials in 17 other U.S. states — mostly in the Midwest and North — who declared energy emergencies and loosened rules for propane transportation from other states, most of which are effective until the end of January.
In many of these states, residents are also being urged to cut down on propane usage since supplies are limited.
