Why is there a shortage of LPG gas bottles ?

There are two main suppliers of LPG gas that have cornered the market with take overs and buy-outs of smaller LPG gas distributors in recent years which has reduced the number of suppliers. The Coronavirus Covid-19 has created a high demand for more home use of BBQ, Pizza oven, and patio heater appliances. The gas canister or gas bottle life-cycle is such that each BBQ, pizza oven or patio heater that is purchased outright, limits the free market availability of the gas bottle required to operate those purchased appliances.
