Why do propane supplier names not appear in price survey?
Visitors to our website may feel that our website should display a list of propane supplier names next to propane supplier prices in our survey (shown to the right). One may assume that showing supplier names would make it very simple to identify the propane supplier offering the lowest propane price per gallon in a specific county for a delivery. However, we do not display propane supplier names for a specific reason. We want to avoid any games on our website where an unethical propane supplier chooses to post false, inflated propane prices next to competitor propane supplier names offering service within a county or counties where the unethical supplier offers propane service, while posting signficantly lower propane pricing next to the unethical supplier company name in an attempt to drive more business to the unethical supplier. The goal of our website is to display posted propane prices and other related delivery information for consumer comparison purposes to help propane consumers determine if his or her propane supplier is charging competitive prices for each delivery. If a lower propane price per gallon appears in our survey, we encourage that propane consumer to contact multiple suppliers in the subject county to compare and determine the lowest price propane supplier.
