Six people were injured in north St. Louis Thursday night while working with a propane cylinder.


Mark Burger of Blackhawk Propane delivers 100 gallons of propane to a rural home on January 24, 2014 near Clinton, Wisconsin. A shortage of propane in the Midwest has caused prices to surge upwards to near $5 a gallon in some markets. The shortage is attributed to an unusually cold winter, increased exports, and a cold wet fall which forced many farmers use propane to fuel dryers for their crops.
