Ohio Gov declares a state of emergency to speed up fuel shipments

Governor Kasich has declared a statewide energy emergency to speed up shipments of propane to the Mother of Presidents to keep the residents warm.

Ohio has experienced a spike in demand for propane gas both for residential and commercial deliveries due to multiple winter storms that have caused extreme winter conditions, dumping massive amounts of snow and freezing rain across the state.

Most homes in rural areas depend on propane deliveries for heating and cooking.

The emergency declaration waives the state licensing requirements for out-of-state propane transporters allowing them to bring propane into Ohio because of the fuel shortage throughout the state.

Earlier this month, Governor Mary Fallin declared a state of emergency due to the depleted supply of propane in Oklahoma.
