Energy Minister Supports Stock Up on LP Gas Early This Winter

Energy Minister, Michael Fallon, has welcomed UKLPG’s message to plan ahead for winter. He comments: “The message is simple: stock up on LP Gas before the winter leaves you out in the cold. By delaying ordering LP Gas you risk longer delivery times if the cold weather increases demand, particularly in remote and rural parts of the country.”

UKLPG, the trade association of the Liquid Petroleum (LP) Gas Industry, urges LP Gas users, particularly in rural areas, to stock up early this winter while suppliers have spare delivery capacity and weather conditions are favourable.

As winter arrives, demand for LP Gas increases at a time when the onset of bad weather can materialise quickly and disrupt deliveries. Going into winter with a full tank of LP gas ensures that householders and business can access the fuel and heat they need, regardless of any external weather conditions and issues with supply.

Many LP Gas suppliers will automatically top up their customers’ tanks to ensure their gas is sufficient going into winter.

Rob Shuttleworth, UKLPG CEO, comments: “Although the LP Gas industry understands the significance of making deliveries, the UK is consistently experiencing harsher and more unpredictable winters that can make the logistics of delivering gas to rural areas incredibly difficult. It is therefore imperative that you stock up on LP Gas now so that you are prepared.”

LP Gas offers rural customers a heating solution that is the closest option to mains gas supply. It burns clean with virtually no soot or sulphur emissions. There are over a million homes in rural areas that are off the mains gas in the UK and therefore depend on deliveries of fuel to keep their properties heated.
