Weak global demand for US exported LPG combined with a tight VLGC market have helped , the Mont Belvieu propane futures curve has recently moved into steep contango between the June 2015 and February 2016 contracts of ($0.11/gal). Such a deep contango indicates that the market is concerned with oversupply.
