Grassley asks for probe into propane price hike

Rural Iowans are reacting to
propane prices that nearly doubled this week to $5 a gallon, reports DesMoinesRegister.com.
U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley has asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate
whether the price increase is justified. An unusually cold winter,
combined with a wet fall that caused farmers to use propane heaters to dry
their corn harvest, has reduced propane supplies.
