This year I had my 500 gallon tank topped off at $2.19 a gallon here in NE Alabama.
Last year it was $1.89.
BTW it just held 106 gallons. I heat with wood and just use gas for cooking and hot water.
What are the prices you guys are being quoted?

I haven’t asked the lp guy about availability since all the dryer gas is booked and we’re ahead of the curve, but I have seen farmers oil bringing it up from down south on the interstate, also we have enough storage to just about get through winter.

Trade them for full ones somewhere that does to Blue Rino swap. Around here most gas stations and grocery stores have them.

You can also buy a converter from old to new but yes...if you can trade it in why not. It's only $20 for a 20# tank. I fill my own from a wet valve in a 500 gallon tank. Get ready folks! It's gonna be a long haul!

The tanks drifter has that they won't fill are 100 pounders. Not sure if anywhere swaps them in like that?

Haven't seen a place does the 100 LB exchange here only the 20 LB.

Before biden was elected the propane industry warned us what would likely happen, due to biden's policies and decisions and it has.

Where does propane come from by the way? Natural gas?

Back in July, my Propane pre pay bill showed up in the mail. I just about went through the roof. An $841.00 dollar increase for this coming season. I have a bunch of storm damaged and downed trees here. Time to fire up the woodstove.

Today, propane primarily comes from
domestic natural gas processing,
especially since shale gas extraction
has increased in recent decades.
Today, close to 70 percent of the U.S.
propane supply comes from natural
gas processing here and in Canada.

Liquid components are recovered as
natural gas is processed. In addition to
propane, methane, butane and
ethane are also produced.

Once propane is produced, it is
shipped to bulk propane distribution
centers by pipeline, tanker ship,
railroad, truck or barge. From there,
propane distributors bring it to local
propane providers like LG Jordan.

I had 100 pound tanks , recertified a couple of years ago. Cost 30.00 each. They put a new valve, purged the tank restamped the date. They ware then good for 10 years. I bought a couple of exchange 100 pounders last year, as long as your exchange tank , was still valid dated, for about 100.00. Haven't seen this years price..

LP was $2.28 a gallon here in NW OK last week. It doesn't sound good for this winter. Supplier said prices going up everyday.

As a student working on my Masters Degree in geology, I was contacted to work at a propane storage facility. The propane was stored under ground in large salt cavities near Bath, NY until prices went up, when it was sold. My job was to extract soil gas from the area (in a large grid), to determine which storage cavities were leaking (due to faults) and should not be used. Interesting work!

That would be an interesting project. It would also prove that the leaks were no fault of your own. wink
