I have been seeing and hearing about the outrageous prices for propane as of late. If where you are is like here, you either own your tank or rent it. I own my tank, and in August I call all the places that sell propane to get a price. I know how much I usually use and I book or pre-buy a years worth. On an average year I will use 600 to 700 gals. When it is supposed to be a mild year I will book 750, this year it was supposed to be cold so I booked 875. Depending on what you can get the distributor down to per gal you can save several dollars in price. The more years and the amount you get also helps on the price you can get. I might could have got him down more but I got this years at a little over 1.90 a gal. Just thought I would let you know if you didn't about booking your propane. Hope you all stay warm.
