We just paid $1.10 a gallon for propane. Anybody else paying more?

I am in central Florida and use propane to run my vehicle and currently pay $1.50 / gallon with about $0.50 / gallon of that going for road tax. The price was $1.20 / gallon in January. The dealer said it was the first time the price went UP in the summer in has 18 years in the business. It normally goes down about $0.50 / gallon or more.

I just bought a used tank and had it filled for $1.25. The competitor from which I usually rent a tank is $1.75. They'll get a call Monday to come get their tank!

I try and fill in the summer like June or July. It was a buck fifty then. Willing to bet it is one seventyfive by now. There is also a 100 gallon minium. We have a 250 gallon tank and depending on how hard the winter is we may not have to refill until next summer but if we do we will only put the minium in and then refill in June or July. They also tell me that those portable tanks five to 25 gallon tanks cost around two dollars a gallon to fill.

In early fall I locked in 650 gal. @ 0.959 per gal.. Glad I did after seeing the other prices posted here. I've got a couple of cords of hedge wood to supplement the propane. The low temp this morning was 15 F.
Keep warm and don't let the bedbugs bite.

I am in northeastern ny and average is 1.69 some pay more and some less.The companys charge a high price and if you do not complain thats what you pay. If you call and make a stink they lower it some.There a lot of older people who never question their bill so they pay 1.89. Time to leave NY.

Filled up last week at $1.29 Plus they also add on an envirolmental sur charge,tocover cost of hazardous training etc. I guess Amerigas wants us to pay all of their costs of doing business.

Filled the 1000 gallon tank about a month ago at 89.9.
I own the tank though, which makes a huge difference around here. Leased tanks cost lots more to fill.

I filled up the tank using the Summer Fill at 0.854 in August and did a 700 gal Winter Contract for $0.98.

P.S. it is my own 500 gal tank.

$1.49 a gallon.

BUT they have an attitude about my 3 semi loads of wood and the outdoor wood furnace.

I think that has something to do with their prices.

I paid $1.04 this week. The guy told me some of the larger companies in this area are charging $1.35. He said the larger the company the more overhead. He also said they have quit talking about it getting to $1.50 this year. Things aren't going to be as bad as predicted.

We can't contract a price, but our supplier will let us prepay prior to October 1st. Thought is was high this year at 96.9 cents. This is in Southern Minnesota.

paid $1.35/gal here in se texas last month.

You betcha. Something like a dollar sixty if I remember right. Haven't seen prices that low for several years.

Donna here in N.W. Ia I contracted propane for 88.2 they delivered some last week and mmistakingly billed it out at reg price 101 less 10 cents so isn,t up much. Supplier says propane has been steady to soft on market and news said we have 6% more propane and natural gas in storage so think it might be gouge time

ret    Posted 12-06-2003 at 05:28:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
have not seen a $1.10 since 99 here in Va. Last I bought in Sept I paid $1.26. I imagine it is$1.45 now at least. ASked company out here if they contracted it out and they said too much price flucuation

Redneck    Posted 12-07-2003 at 03:14:18       [Reply]  [No Email]
That's about the average here.I talked to a trucker that pulled it bulk for years and he said the actual cost has been at about 42 cents since before he started and retired after 40 years.
