Price of Propane around the country
[Return to Topics]

$1.99 is what I paid here in S.E. Tennessee. Am I getting ripped off? I'm paying a tank lease of $45 a year, and burn about 500 gallons per year. My propane is delivered on a route, and I'm topped off about every 6 weeks during the winter. I've never run out of propane, so maybe the service makes up for the price?

I'm considering a 1000 gallon in ground tank and would like to "shop" propane in the summer when the prices are down.

How's everybody else doing 2 bucks a gallon, I've got to think about doing something different.......

I have an american standard heat pump, but the ventless heaters sure are nice on a day in the teens....the heat pump just don't seem comfortable
during a cold spell......Electric water heater...thinking of converting to propane when it gives it up......

We paid $1.60 here, cost almost $500.00 to fill the tank up. We own our own tank. We just put in a wood stove which I just love, the glass stays clean and lets you see the fire burning, and you can keep coffee pot or cook beans on the top of it. We are burning oak and pecan at present.It is COLD here in TX (for the past 2 days, one more night of freezing till the thaw comes).Merry Christmas !!

I must be in high priced terrotory here in Statesboro Ga. I am a tobacco farmer and in July, August and September burned $45,000 worth and paid $1.16. One month ago an employee of mine moved into one of my mobil homes and needed gas. My price then was $1.269 and if he bought it in his name and paid cash $2.67.

Here in Southern Minnesota I paid 89.9 cents a gallon for summer fill. In September I locked in about 1200 gallons at 99.9 cents a gallon. Driver told me the other day I'd be paying about 21 cents more now if I hadn't of prepaid. He says it's going higher before winter is over.

about $1.80 here in N Va. Learned one thing, never have them bury their tank . when I wanted to go to larger one,they said no. When I told them I wanted to buy it, they said no. When I told them I was thinking about changing vendors, they said $350 to dig up their tank. Absolutley no competition here in this really high priced area. Some are higher than my vendor is.

I own my 250 gal tank and am paying $1.20 per gal and others are paying $1.50 per gal from the same co. I'm also looging for a 500 gal tank to tie into the one i have so i can fill up with the lowest price co in summer. James (West Ga)

I pre-bought 700 gallons a few months ago at $1.629. No other charges. I'd shop if I was you. Seems like it should be less costly just about everywhere in the country but here. Of course the more you use, the less per unit you will pay.

That sounds really high to me.
I paid 98.9 to fill mine in July here in S.E. PA. It should be enough to get me through the winter unless it's an unusually cold one. I own the tank (1000 gal) and can shop around to get the best price. I bought in July so I don't know what it would cost now, it would no doubt be more.

I'm in south centeral Kansas and the going price for propane is $1.40ish a gallon. I lucked out and in the fall I bought "Prepay" at $1.05 a gallon. I locked in 650 gallons. I usally use around 950 gallons per year.

Sounds very high to me.

I burn about 8-900 gallons/year. The tank is free, and I am paying $1.19/gal. Last year I paid $0.979/gal.

This is in southwestern Wisconsin.

I suggest that you find a new supplier.

$30 for the 500 gallon tank. it came with 200 in it so they charged us $1.20 i think. gotta have so lite the burner & smile. 15 below last nite so it never quits unless we get lotsa sunshine thru the windows. that window's like a free 200-foot-long 120 degree pipe.
