Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Ron Wyden on Tuesday linked his concerns about natural gas exports to the propane shortage hitting consumers in the Midwest during this month’s Arctic cold blasts.

Wyden, D-Ore., said at a committee hearing that he and ranking Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska arranged a staff briefing later in the day by the Energy Information Administration and the department’s Office of Electric Delivery and Energy Reliability on the shortage and spikes in retail prices.
