BUSINESS BRIEF

Mich. hit by shortage of heating oil, propane

BLADE NEWS SERVICES

LANSING — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has declared an emergency because of a temporary shortage of heating oil and propane caused by increased demand in recent subzero weather.

Mr. Snyder said Friday the shortage also is because of heavy snow that delayed delivery of heating oil and propane.

The governor’s executive order suspends regulations to allow fuel trucks to be on the road more hours and more days in a row to deliver heating oil and propane. The order is effective immediately.
