Illinois state agencies have taken steps to alleviate this winter's propane shortage.
The shortage is caused by a combination of the unusually long and severe winter, repairs on a major propane pipeline and increased propane use for drying corn and other grains.
To help increase the state's supply of propane, federal and state agencies have waived certain regulations permitting propane truck drivers to haul heavier loads, operate longer hours and bypass meter inspections.
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is offering a $1,000 increase in the Low Income Energy Assistance Program to eligible households for purchasing propane.
Likewise, this increased benefit is available to newly eligible applicants that sign up for LIHEAP. Click here for more information on how to apply for LIHEAP.
The department is also temporarily waiving the $75 fee for LIHEAP applicants who use propane for home heating. Information about local LIHEAP administrators can be found here.
The Illinois Attorney General is reviewing propane supply and pricing issues. Suspected fraud and price gouging can be reported to the Attorney General's Consumer Fraud Bureau at 1-800-243-0618 or by email at
