Columbia, Mo. (AP) - Heating your home may not be a priority this time of year, but MFA Media Relations Director Tom May said customers should already be contacting their propane suppliers. May said propane in the summer is more accessible, making it more inexpensive.

Following this winter's storm, a propane shortage caused prices to skyrocket. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, national propane prices increased 32.8 percent this January compared to the prior year.

According to the Missouri Propane Gas Association, the challenges in delivering propane for customers for the winter season started in October. May said consumers should have their propane set before Autumn arrives.

"Most customers only need to get their propane tank filled a few times during the year," Ghan said. "So if we can take those times and move them to off-peak periods so they're not getting them in the heat of a price spike like we had this last year, you know that's the best thing to do."

Ghan also said the best advice he has for propane customers is to maintain communication with your propane company so you know what options are available.

More than 14 million families in the U.S. use propane to fuel their furnaces, according to the National Propane Gas Association.
