Propane & Petroleum

  • Petroleum

    According to the EIA, Michigan uses more propane in the residential sector than any other state in the country. An estimated 320,000 Michigan households use propane as their primary heating fuel. Additionally, Michigan relies on petroleum products to meet about 1/3 of its energy needs. Although propane and petroleum prices are not regulated, the MPSC monitors the market to identify irregularities that may result in supply or price disruptions. The MPSC publishes the Michigan Energy Appraisal report biannually, detailing Michigan's energy supply and availability.
