MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and six other governors are writing to President Barack Obama asking for help in addressing the propane shortage and price increases.

They are asking for the administration to help increase propane supplies through “every means of transport.”

They encouraged Obama to consider regulatory waivers aimed at increasing supplies and hoped the Small Business Administration would ease loan requirements to help communities respond to the shortage.

The letter also said they wanted to explore actions to improve supply stability in future years.

The letter dated Tuesday was sent through the Midwest Governor’s Association, of which Dayton is chair. The other governors are Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
