Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer declared a state of emergency on Friday due to a propane shortage in the state.

The declaration effectively ended certain restrictions on propane delivery drivers for the next 15 days so the gas -- often used as a source of heat for cooking -- can be delivered to chilled communities.

The declaration cites several issues, including freezing temperatures, a spike in demand and different regulations that affect deliveries for its issuance.
