(ABC 6 News) -- Government officials and propane suppliers are advising consumers to fill their tanks before cold weather arrives because prices could climb again this winter.

Last winter dwindling Midwest supplies and rising demand pushed propane prices to more than three times normal to nearly $5 per gallon. Officials don't expect prices that high but say it is important to think ahead.

ABC 6 News reporter Meghan Reistad has the story.
