Minnesota lawmakers are calling on President Barack Obama to address the propane shortage in the Midwest.

Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, along with Governor Mark Dayton, are calling on the President to address the shortage. Congressman Rick Nolan and other representative are also stepping in.

Wisconsin representative Nick Milroy called for his state to take action Friday.

The politicians want the President's Administration to knock down regulations and take steps to alleviate the shortage. They said any further reduction in propane means people won't be able to heat their homes.

The price for propane Friday was over $5 a gallon. That number is double what is was less than a week ago.
