Wisconsin officials offer propane purchasing tips

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin consumer protection officials are offering propane users tips on purchasing more gas.

A number of Midwestern states, including Wisconsin, grappled with a pronounced propane shortage this past winter due large to extended periods of frigid weather, a pipeline closure and heavy propane demand for drying grain.

The state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection says propane users should start planning ahead for this winter, saying prices are lower right now.

The agency has posted a tip sheet on its website for purchasing propane. The sheet defines industry terms and includes advice on contracts and how to schedule deliveries as well as a list of questions buyers should ask suppliers.
