LP in short supply in Eastern Iowa

Posted:

BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) -- Eastern Iowa farmers have been hard hit by weather this year and the obstacles just seem to keep coming...

Wet weather pushed harvest back. According to the most recent crop report, it's about three weeks behind.

Recently, elevators like the Eastern Iowa Co-op have been forced to allocate or ration liquid propane.

"Right now we're delivering to our dryer customers only -- just enough to get them by so they can keep running their dryers day by day," said Terry Grant, manager of the Eastern Iowa Co-Op. " We're trying to get enough loads in so we can cover all of our customers at the same time."

Grant says he hopes the majority of farmers will be done drying by the end of the week, lessening the fuel demand.
