Plenty Of Fuel For Heating

Experts say supplies of heating fuels in Iowa will be able to meet the demand this fall and winter. Harold Hommes is director of the Iowa Department of Agriculture’s marketing bureau.

There may be a greater draw on propane supplies this fall to dry grain that’s harvested with higher-than-normal moisture levels.

In an average year, about half of Iowa’s corn crop is dried in bins with propane fuel. During the soggy harvest of 2007, propane prices topped two dollars a gallon due to increased demand for drying grain. However, large supplies from recently tapped reserved in North Dakota have helped keep Midwest propane prices low in recent years.
