Well of course, aren't we all? Just less so for heat in particular than some others.

I use this but only burn a little wood at the beginning of the heating season, then coal.

I'm no expert in how the distribution of heating oil works, except to say that in spring and fall, refineries generally have shutdowns to change equipment over from refining for certain types of fuels and petroleum products, to others. In the refining industry in the Northeastern and Northern Midwest areas, the shorthand is summer blend, and winter blend gasoline, because of some changes in additives. It includes heating fuel made from spring to summer, until the fall shutdowns, and is shipped to storage tanks around the country by ship, rail, truck, etc. You can't keep many fuels in storage for too long because of oxidation ruining the fuels. And the oil industry spends money on projections on need for heating or other fuels, and sometimes those projections are off.

Apparently the propane shortage is a result of farmers using the propane reserves up earlier in the year due to an early cold season. Also 24 states have lifted the regulations on transporting propane and heating oil so it can get to consumers faster.
