I live just outside of Wichita KS and I just had my tank (500 gal.)filled today and had to pay $1.19 per gallon. The driver said I was getting a good deal as the price had just droped 10 cents.
How is the prices in your area?
I posted this same thing on the "Common Ground" forum and some of those guys are paying up around $1.75 a gallon. At that price I'd have to morgage the house each year just to pay the heating bill.

I was astounded to receive a bill from Leahy's in Danbury, CT, for a delivery in April 2003 of 37.3 gallons, an admittedly small amount of propane that we use for cooking only, at $4.09 per gallon. What do you think?

at $4/gal and for only 37 gallons, i would take the tank somewhere and fill it myself. you might be able to save by shopping around?

best to you!

Take a look at a new website Shows residential propane prices in your area. However, not alot of price entries yet.

Shocking. Are they charging everyone that much or just taking advantage of you?

Found this - Average propane prices

Currently have a spot price of about 70 some odd cents. Some one stop me: I have the ability to lock in 2003/2004 season this week 4/24 at $0.90 and think I will go for it.

I WISH I had to pay $1.19 a gallon. I live outside of Pittsburgh and just filled my tank for

Filled our tank last October, small tank shaped like a sub. Cost $69.00, this week cost $167.00 for the same amount of propane (after a $9.00 credit). Live in small town, trucks must not have price meter on them because when you call for a refil you tell them how much is left and they tell you what you need and the cost. Strangest set up I have ever seen, but for now we are stuck with them.

just got a refill and the price was $2.88/gallon,
up 36% from the last refill I had. And, it's very
diffcult to find how Amerigas prices its product.
And, Amas adds in a $3.57 surcharge for
"hazardous materials" which is not imposed
by government nor paid to government.

Amerigas' charge for the surcharge comes from what taxes the company must pay to the state for transfering hazardious materials. duh

Got a refill last week: Driver said I was real lucky. I pre-bought in August for $.899. Driver said the going price last week was $1.809!!!

I live in Bennett, Colorado and in January it was .80 cents pg if you bought 200 or more gallons.

BOSS    Posted 03-11-2003 at 17:12:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
We were paying $1.09 until they came out and I was still 80% full, and they saw my outdoor wood burner, they raised it to $1.19 2 months ago, I have no idea what it is now.

Your gonna love this. Me and the wife were both city kids. We built the house in 99, and it was first time in country. Up till then farmers were outraged if propane ever went to 80 cents. I got a couple bills for over $900/month for my house. Gas went to $2.25/gallon, plus shipping charge x 400 gallons a month to heat the house. It was horrible, all the studs were still wet, so of course the house naturally soaked up heat the first year. Plus we did not that much stuff in the house to collect, and give off heat. Oh, yes it was fun. My new neighbor works for the gas company, and last year locked me in at 99 cents. I had the heat CRANKED up. LOL This year he locked me at $1.25. It is huge, because when I called the other day, the secretary was like, we do not have you on record, and it is $1.45 a gallon. I was like I will call back when my neighbor is in his office.

We locked in last summer at 82 cents/gallon. Makes prepaying worth it. Especially since natural gas prices are high also.

jamo    Posted 03-11-2003 at 04:06:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Boy, ya all make me feel sooo much better. We locked in on a summer special at .89 per gallon. If you pay in full in 14 days they knock it down to .79!

Southeast Wisconsin - 1.51 today

just paid $1.75 gal western NY,

Maggie    Posted 03-10-2003 at 20:09:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
You did get a good price. Here, the next county over from Houston it is $1.60 per gallon. Good thing that all we use propane for is the two heaters for the house. And it has been a mild winter for us down here.

Burrhead    Posted 03-10-2003 at 20:21:54       [Reply]  [No Email]
yeah propane is 1.59 in Chambers county Maggie.

I paid 1.23 for my off road diesel fuel last month.

Reg gas is 1.63 at the station

Ludwig    Posted 03-11-2003 at 05:33:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
Since its been so cold diesel is up around $1.95 here. The mixers have a hard time getting the kero to cut it. That and lots of it gets used keeping houses warm. House oil is around $1.70.
Gas is down around $1.65 which is down almost a dime from last week.

Maggie    Posted 03-10-2003 at 20:48:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
Burr, reg. gas it $1.58 here at Race Track. Oh, and I got some of that tetracycline stuff and tried the first dose. Yall weren't kidding about the taste! Welch's grape juice is good to chase it, though. Now if I just don't start acting wierd like shedding or anything....mooo

Burrhead    Posted 03-10-2003 at 20:55:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
LMAO- Naw you won't go to shedding but that stuff does taste horrible.

I always just put a heaping table spoon into a very small amount of plain water and chase it with whatever is handy.

I'll try the grape juice.

Which side of Houston are you located?? I have'nt been to Baytown in several days. There's a Racetrack on Hwy 146 at Mont Belvieu but they don't sell diesel fuel.

Maggie    Posted 03-11-2003 at 09:52:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
Burrhead, we are just out of Dayton, which is Liberty County, the next county to the northeast of Harris County. There is a Race Track in Dayton on Highway 90 in Dayton just before you get to the turn off for Hwy. 146 S to go toward Baytown. There's another RT in Baytown on Garth Rd.

Robert    Posted 05-14-2003 at 18:27:27       [Reply]  [Send Email]
In the mountains overlooking the Silicon Valley. New bill $1.61 a gallon
