Residential Propane Prices

Pertaining to residential propane pricing.

New Propane Price Entries

We periodically receive e-mail messages from our website visitors indicating that specific counties across the country do not contain comparable propane price data.  The solution to this challenge is to have more and more propane consumers enter their propane pricing data.

How do we work together to accomplish this goal?

Propane Supplier Teaser Games

During the summer months, some propane suppliers offer teaser propane rates to attract propane customers.  Some of the teasers include free propane tank installation, lower first fill offers, among other financial gifts and incentives. 

Summer Time Propane Offers

It's summer and it's time to evaluate your propane supplier's service.  With the warm summer weather, most home propane customers are using propane fuel for limited appliances. Perhaps you are using propane for waterheating.  Perhaps you use your propane for a swimming pool heater or a spa heater.  Perhaps you are using propane for cooking.  Whatever your consumption, it is very possible that you are using a lesser amount that during the cold winter weather. It is important to be aware of summer time propane supplier offers.

Propane Price Quote

As suggested in other areas of our website, propane consumers should make it a priority to contact other propane suppliers BEFORE accepting future home propane deliveries.   A propane home heating consumer should obtain a propane price quote from a minimum of three local suppliers offering service in his/her area to ensure that that  quote is representative of local pricing. 

Why Do Propane Supplier Names Not Appear in Our Propane Price Survey?

Several of our website visitors have contacted us to request that we provide a space for folks to post propane supplier names next to posted prices in our price survey (shown on our website home page).  In theory, this would make it very easy for our website visitors to quickly access our website, review prices next to propane supplier names, then order propane from the propane supplier offering the lowest current propane price.

Reasons Propane Prices Change

Many propane suppliers have put reasons that propane prices change on their company websites.  For example, suppliers may state that propane is a by-product of the natural gas extraction process and propane pricing may be impacted by this process.  Another reason may include the distance that propane is transported before it reaches the customer destination.  Another reason may be noted as 'seasonal demand'.  All of these reasons may impact the price of propane. 

Review of Website Visitor Poll Results

We have an ongoing poll for our website visitors to register their response to the question that appears.  Our website poll question is currently as follows:

Does your propane supplier notify you of your propane price per gallon before each home delivery? 

Timing to Select or Change Your Propane Supplier

Summer is a great time to select a propane supplier (if you need propane service) or to change propane suppliers (if you are dissatisfied with your current propane supplier).

Why is summer a good time to start propane service?

There are four great reasons:

Propane Price Gouging

Propane home heating customers can use anywhere in the range of a couple hundred gallons plus or minus per year to a couple thousand plus or minus gallons of propane per year to fuel common household propane gas appliances (furnaces, waterheaters, clothes dryers, cooking appliances, pool heaters, spa heaters, etc.).  Purchasing this range of volume of propane per year can add up to a significant amount of money per year. 

Know Your Propane Price Before Each Delivery

Many propane suppliers choose not to openly post or publish current propane prices for customers to view and compare.  Some suppliers indicate that they are unable to openly publish the current propane price per gallon BEFORE a delivery because wholesale propane prices change very rapidly.  This is very interesting. 

Question: What do current wholesale propane prices have to do with giving an existing propane customer their propane price price per gallon BEFORE each delivery???
