Just a reminder, I'm in favor of the government NOT regulating this, just wanted to point out the opinion history.

You're probably right.

Did you hear about the natural gas pipeline explosion in Canada? How convenient that this happens while propane us $5 a gallon and demand is very high.

Assuming that the reasons why we limit the amount of hours that a driver can drive a tractor-trailer is for safety, do we really want people hauling propane to be driving longer hours? What kind of damage might we expect should one fall asleep at the wheel?

As much as I don't like it, do they really have any legal standing to interfere with normal supply and demand?
