AMBERG, Wis. (AP) -- Residents and businesses in northern Wisconsin are helping neighbors make it through the region's propane shortage.

Press-Gazette Media reports residents in Amberg have shared supplies of the gas that's used for heating and cooking.

Wisconsin is one of several Midwest states struggling with a propane shortage after farmers' late harvests depleted regional supplies. Farmers use the gas to dry crops for storage.

State officials have loosened highway regulations and provided state and federal aid to residents. Business owners in the area said they've made late-night deliveries to residents with low supplies.
