Dependent on your climate I think propane has priced itís self out of the market...for one reason only...greed. >:(  Our last house had a high efficiency heat pump with propane backup.  Propane hot water heater also.  House were building now is gonna be all electric with wood backup.

Funny you should ask, we got our contract in today and it's $2.07 a gallon prepaid.

I have to agree with Larry though. It's quickly pricing itself out of the market. We plan on using as much wood heat this winter as possible.

Just got my contract offer. 2.14 prepay, or 2.19 if you put 50 cents a gallon down.

I just paid over $4 gal at the fuel depot to get 3 small tanks filled for the grill.    Lowes is getting $22 for a 5 gal tank exchange.

I have noticed in my area numerous people putting new high effeciency wood stoves in that heat with propane, I think propane is definitly pricing itself out of business.  I used to heat with propane, after installing a high effeciency wood stove three years ago, I hardly use any propane at all, sure is nice to have the money in my pocket instead of someone elses.

If you think propane has priced itself out of the market try fuel oil.
