Governor Signs Gas Order

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed an executive order recently that temporarily puts into place emergency rules for the Wyoming Department of Transportation allowing drivers to make extra propane deliveries to homes and businesses over the next month.

The order is effective through March 18th. Demand for propane, which many people use to heat their homes, has increased because of recent frigid temperatures throughout the state.

The emergency rule suspends regulations on driving hours to allow drivers to meet the increased demand but still indicates drivers cannot be on the road when they are fatigued. As such, the propane delivery companies are specifically asked to take extra precautions to ensure both the public and drivers’ safety.

This order is specific to drivers either bringing propane to Wyoming, or doing in-state deliveries.
