    “I’ve been with Como for 18 years and I’ve never seen anything like this.”

    Joe Stariha, Co-President of Como Oil and Propane is talking about the price of propane, reaching historic prices, and it keeps getting higher.

    “It skyrocketed again today, we’re looking at about a 140 percent increase in the last two weeks,” said Stariha.

    The propane problem is being blamed on a wet crop harvest last year, a brutal start to this winter and high demand all round, and Stariha worries it might only get worse.

    “Propane is in the high four dollar range and possibly by next week in the five dollar range per gallon,” said Stariha.

    And it’s the same story at Superior Fuel Company, they’re encouraging their customers to find other ways to heat their homes.

    “We’re looking at people’s cost to heat their homes doubling, tripling, quadrupling. I’m actually telling friends and family to go out and buy electric heaters because the cost of gas, I don’t know how people are going to pay for it,” said Ryan Gunderson, Vice-President, Superior Fuel Company.
