Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant executed an emergency declaration that includes an Hours of Service Waiver in response to Tropical Storm Barry. The waiver is in effect from Jul 13, 2019 until such time the storm ceases to be a threat to public safety.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), Midwestern Service Center, Southern Service Center, and Western Service Center issued a Regional Emergency Declaration effective July 11, 2019 due to Tropical Cyclone 2 across these states:
Propane stocks to continue rising above 2017-18 levels while days of disposition increases are restrained by growing exports.
The weekly stock report released by the EIA continues to show an increasing separation over the stock levels seen in 2017 and 2018, at the same time in the year, and a return to the higher levels the US experienced before the most recent wave of export terminals began operating. IHS Markit forecasts that this relative growth will continue through the summer and stocks are forecast to surpass the levels seen previous to 2017 by the end of the build season.
NPGA is committed to strengthening the businesses of our members and the propane industry through powerful advocacy, standards development, safety and training materials, networking opportunities, and information resources.
