Cuba warns citizens of cooking gas shortage due to US sanctions

The Cuban government is warning citizens to prepare for shortages of  cooking gas due to Trump administration sanctions on the island.
State media on Tuesday announced that cylinders of liquid petroleum gas would be scarce for Cubans who buy state-subsidized gas.
Many homes in Cuba depend on bottled gas because they are not connected to municipal gas lines. 
Electric stoves and hotplates are relatively rare and expensive to use due to high electricity prices.
The government said in an announcement on state media that a Trump administration sanction announced in November against Cuban state energy company Corporación Panamericana had forced the cancellation of planned purchases of liquid petroleum gas.
