Minnesota settles suit with Ferrellgas, some customers to receive refunds


ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson has settled a lawsuit with Ferrellgas L.P., a national propane energy company. The settlement requires Ferrellgas to change its business practices and recovers money for Minnesota consumers who paid undisclosed charges or fees.

The state's suit alleged that Ferrellgas didn't always disclose specific per-gallon prices to consumers. Actual rates were sometimes significantly higher than those of competitors.
