The U.S. senators from the Dakotas are among the bipartisan group of senators who have sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him to provide additional relief to people affected by the nationwide propane shortage and its price surge.
The letter was sent to the White House on Friday. The senators say the shortage threatens the safety of families and the financial stability of farms and businesses.
Propane is a crucial heating source in several states including the Dakotas. The propane drain has coincided with extreme cold temperatures this year.
The propane crisis has been such, that authorities on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the Dakotas are investigating whether a woman found dead on Tuesday in a mobile home with an empty propane tank died from the cold.
