Propane prices ?
« on: October 26, 2021, 03:02:02 PM »
We only use about  180 gallons of propane a year for hot water and cooking.  We have a 100 gallon tank and call for a delivery when it's about at 10% left which is twice a year. My wife  called for a delivery yesterday and was told it's  at $4.89 a gallon now and that could  go up soon. Wondering what everyone  else is paying this year. It's quite  a jump over the price we paid 6 months ago.

Beter get it while you can.  Several weeks ago it was announced that there will be propane shortages this winter.  For your own safety of course.

Just ordered in the u.p. for the cabin 2.07 a gallon. Back at home it is 1.89.  We have line 5 that is in hot debate and if that goes down, big trouble in river city up here

Was at Canadian(offshore) tire today and motor oil made a 50%+ price jump! 70$ before tax for a jug of 5L Oil!! So long gone just sit back and watch this insanity unfold. I don’t know how much longer this is sustainable.

And my governent pension. ::) I paid $32cdn for 25L of oil a short time ago, sure glad I didn't wait. The landlady made noises that I might want to look for something more affordable after giving me notice of a rent increase which is limited by law. She wants to let it out at market value which has shot up since I moved here, I can't blame her but rentals are scarce.

Its okay sawguy! Everything is totally fine! Lets print a bunch of money, keep playing identity politics, and bringing in nearly 1m immigrants in a year with a country with a housing supply shortage as it is.  The house is on fire but everyone is sitting at the kitchen table eating dinner like nothing

The best medicine for high prices, is high prices.   It's the wait for the crash that hurts.

It's economics 101, supply and demand. 

If you shut down supply and demand comes back, which it has, you're going to see higher prices.

Wow looks like we are over double everyone else's price. Must be some price gouging  going on because we called another dealer and the price is the same.

Last summer it was $4.07 here. I talked them down to $3.54 because I have 3 accounts ( kind of >> one house I sold, another uses 50 gallons a year and the other currently has no gas appliances) LOL

Looks like it is 43 cents a gallon plus 8% sales tax. Not sure if the raise to 92 cents a gallon they are pushing for has passed yet.

My go-to bulk supplier give a discount for cash and for over 20 gallons.  They only charge for what the meter reads as opposed to charging 5 gallons to fill a BBQ tank that only holds 4.25 gallons (85% fill).  So there price cash on 20+ gallons today was $3.19/g.  My daughter works at a feed store and employees (and families) get propane at cost + 10%.  So I filled 9 tanks at $2.40/g.  Their price on exchange is a couple bucks higher than Walmart but I just did the two out dated (1990) tanks/valves I had because I was there.  $20.24 each.  Pretty much a rip off since they only have 3.5 gallons of propane in them (per the tag) - $5.78/gallon!

@21incher  I feel your pain lived in that state for15 years that was enough for me. Incredibly diverse and beautiful landscape but the cost of living there was and sounds like still is brutal.
