VT’s Congressional Delegates Ask for Propone to Stop Being Exported

propaneCalling for “urgent and decisive action,” U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and U.S. Rep.

The lawmakers sought the export curbs at a time when domestic prices of propane nationwide are 60 percent greater this winter than one year ago.
