Are You Aware Of Your Propane Price Per Gallon BEFORE each of your home deliveries?
Many propane heating customers allow their propane supplier to make propane deliveries to their home week after week, month after month and year after year. Many of these same customers simply open the invoice and write a check to the propane supplier to pay for the propane without researching local propane pricing to determine if they are paying a fair and competitive propane price per gallon for each delivery based in the propane pricing charged by other local suppliers. Unfortunately, not all propane suppliers conduct business with customers with a high level of honesty and integrity. An unethical company may view a situation of selling a product to a consumer that has no idea of the current competitive price of that product as a perfect opportunity to take advantage of a customer or customers by overcharging the customer. This is the definition of propane price gouging.
A propane customer should NEVER accept a propane delivery from a propane supplier without being aware of the EXACT propane price per gallon that the propane supplier will be charging for the pending delivery BEFORE the delivery truck arrives (the only exception is a situation where the customer and supplier have a written fixed propane price per gallon agreement or propane price cap agreement that ensures that the propane price is to be a specific price for a specific period of time or a specific quantity of propane. With this type of agreement, the customer should always double check the invoice to ensure that is matches the fixed propane price or price cap amount agreed to at an earlier date).
Since most propane suppliers choose not to publicly post their current propane pricing on their company website or other public display, it takes a dilligent effort on the part of each propane customer to learn how make sure a supplier's propane price is competitive when compared to other local propane suppliers for each delivery.

A Few Things To Consider
Please keep in mind that this is not a scientific propane price survey and the data is subject to various factors that may impact the results. Consider the following when viewing our survey of propane prices:
- A higher propane price per gallon and/or a higher delivery fee may be an isolated event involving a customer not contacting their propane supplier in a timely manner for a delivery and incurring a higher price per gallon and/or a higher delivery fee for one specific after hours delivery following a customer propane run-out.
- A higher propane price per gallon and/or higher delivery fee entry among other lower propane price entries in the same county may simply be a situation where a customer did not conduct local propane pricing research prior to receiving their propane delivery. Consumers in these counties (and neighboring counties) should maintain a high-level of awareness when accepting deliveries from local propane suppliers and conduct extensive research on local propane prices before accepting future propane deliveries to ensure that they do not become a victim of propane overpayment in the future.
- The more propane delivery/propane price entries in our database, the more valuable our website is to each website visitor.
