LPG Shortage

Does anyone know about an LPG shortage?

I haven't been seeing it many places and where I have it is up to 80/litre

I spoke to a lady at the BP near Barnstaple and she said they aren't producing it and won't be for six weeks, then hospitals and homes will have priority before petrol stations BUT no amount Googling can verify the story?

Does anyone have any insights?

Check out the thread here http://www.fullfatrr.com/forum/topic46540.html

I believe that an LPG refinery in Norway has shut temporarlily, causing the supply shortage. The remaining stocks are being held back for domestic use, but down here suppliers are struggling to even supply houses before they run out, leaving some cold folk out there over the past couple of weeks.

Hopefully when the weather warms up, and spring finally gets here, things will get back to normal. David

A couple of refinery shut downs that weren't planned plus a problem with a supply pipe line overseas. Colleague sells the auto stuff and has been struggling to get a regular supply. The govt even relaxed the drivers working hours regs for lpg tanker drivers for a couple of weeks in early March in order to keep supplies on the move but it made little difference. The general outlook is not to rosy I'm afraid.
