CINCINNATI (AP) – Propane sellers in Ohio say customers should think about filling their tanks now before winter hits.

The Ohio Propane Gas Association says it doesn’t expect another propane shortage like the one that hit Ohio and other states across the country last winter.

But the group’s executive vice president says weather and transportation issues will play a role in whether homeowners will face shortages again.

David Field tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that customers should secure a contract with a supplier because those without one will be first to be hit by supply shortages.

About 6 percent of Ohio households are heated primarily using propane, most of them rural homes. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
