It's about time to crank up the heater, but don't worry, propane prices shouldn't sky rocket like they did last winter.
Rebecca Sapakie has more in Jefferson City.
The Natural Resources Department says propane dealers have been stocking up over the summer to keep winter prices relatively stable.
A dry summer has farmers using less propane to dry their crops, and decreasing demand from last year, according to Jim Muench (MENCH) a spokesman for the Natural Resources Department.
Although average prices have risen by about two cents per gallon since September, Muench says that is still about eleven percent lower than last year.
