(KARE) Right now, there are less pros with propane and a lot more cons.

That's because there is currently a nationwide propane shortage and Minnesotans are feeling the squeeze.

"We've had to reevaluate our budgets to see how this will work," says Melissa Doll who lives in rural Stacy. "It's basically doubled."

The Doll family spent $1.40 per gallon of propane last winter, but this year it's around $2.40. It means it costs about $14 per day to heat their home.
