Propane:   Midwest inventory (or PADD II) is 22 million barrels--almost 1% higher than last week with inventory levels remaining below the normal range.  The Energy Information Administration estimates 25 million barrels in storage by the end of September to be a benchmark for the Midwest.  As of September 26, the national inventory level is 65 million barrels.  Industry observers believe a 60-million-barrel level for national inventory is adequate prior to the start of the heating season.

Natural Gas:   The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 1,667 billion cubic feet--4% more than last week but 44 billion cubic feet or 2.6% below the 5-year average.  As of September 26, the national inventory level is 2,688 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of approximately 212 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
