 Propane Prices

We needed to fill our 1000 gallon tank and our regular supplier, Ferrellgas, wanted $2.79/gallon! Yikes. Thought I'd call around and found another supplier who was $1.79. Suburban was over $3! What are you guys paying now.

I know this isn't going to be much help, but we signed up for their 'pre-buy' last fall through Ferrellgas and locked in a price of $1.69/gal with a sign-up cost of $35. I've been meaning to call around to find out if it was a deal or not, but haven't, I think because I don't want to know if it wasn't!

It's not uncommon for propane dealers to offer lower prices for first time sales to new customers but Ferrelgas is unreal. Dealing with them is like dealing with a used car salesman. When I balked at the $2.79 price and told them another dealer was a buck lower they said, "Well, we can go lower". What a pantload. Does anyone really want to negotiate the price every time they fill up? Next week I'll have the pleasure of calling them to come and get their tank.

Here in Michigan my provider is in the $1.79/1.89 range depending upon quantity of purchase and if it is pre-pay.

 Propane Prices

I bought a tank from Ferrelli gas and locked in a one time price of $1.10 gal. The next time we called we had to negotiate a price of $1.69 gal. last month. I thought the best way was to negotiate. I you wine about the babies milk money, and your broke tractor it seems to help.

 Propane Prices

I will be looking into buying a large tank. When I move, I plan to use propane as a back up. I never have checked into the expected life of a tank, anyone here no the lifespan estimate of these tanks? My plan was to buy a tank around a thousand gallons or so. I may never use that much for many years but one never knows what health conditions will permit for working with wood funaces (loading and stocking up)
I paid $1.65 last September or August. Right now I rent the tank. A 500 galoner costs me $41 a year. That covers new paint and maintanance (what ever there may be?)Laughing out loud
Problem with renting the tank is that you are required to get a refill from them. This creates a mark up of around 10 cents a gallon over the free market suppliers.
I dont mind this right now since I only use about 300 gallons a year. I keep my place heated all winter long around 45 degrees and around 80 degree's when the little lady is in it! Yep I am in my skibby's right now typeing
(Yes it is an aweful sight by the way)
Cant quite figure her out. From September to May she has the heat set on 74-78 degree's From June too Sept she has the Air conditioner set on 68 degrees. You tell me whats wrong with this picture? We seem to be missing the temperature range of 69 degrees to 75 degrees. Yes I love my bride very much Laughing out loud
