Feb 7 (Reuters) - The U.S. government must continue to offer assistance to consumers facing spikes in propane prices this winter, a bipartisan coalition of Senators said on Friday.

The lawmakers asked President Barack Obama to direct agencies to use their authority to mitigate the impact of a domestic propane shortage and to review all options to help facilitate propane deliveries to affected areas. (Reporting by Ros Krasny. Editing by Andre Grenon)
