Letters: Propane price skyrockets

A most surprising thing has happened here because of the cold in the east.

Propane prices have nearly doubled. Not just for your barbeque, but those who use propane furnaces, and stoves. I have a great and wonderful stove (AGA) on propane. I had no idea until I received my propane bill after the automatic fill this morning. My last bill was around $380, from late November, and the one this morning was $640. Wow. Ready to turn off all propane and use..gulp... Hydro? There has to be another way!

Time to sharpen the chainsaw, find a couple of old, downed trees, and where did I put that camping cooking grate?
