Was greed the cause?

A few weeks ago it was indicated that about $15.8 million was provided for heating assistance. Is it good to return taxpayer dollars so it can be forwarded through consumers in need to those in the propane industry which either miscalculated, or mismanaged or was it greed that caused the shortage and high prices?

Of course those households which earn a dollar too much for any assistance just get to pay more to this industry. Are these folks going to be sinking or just have less to spend on other household necessities? Of course those in the propane industry will have more to spend.
