    Propane costs

    A barrel of oil costs about a quarter what it has over the past year; gasoline is about half what it was, or slightly less; I recently had my propane tank filled for $4.25/gal - I was somewhat surprised, and expected it to be less. Any of you care to share what you paid for propane if you had a delivery over the past few months?

    Actually, if you track the wholesale prices for gasoline they lag the price of oil by about 2 weeks but have fallen just as much. The reason it doesn't seem like it is that your friendly federal, state and local governments don't take their cut until it gets to the pump

    If gas was being given away to the station owners taxes would keep the cost ranging from $.629 per gallon in NY to $.264 per gallon in Alaska.

    We'd be paying $.384 here in Texas

    Re: Propane costs

    I just paid $2.99 a gallon this last weekend. I needed to fill my bbq tank and two tanks on our camping trailer.

    SCCS -
    Was the propane delivered or did you take the tank in to be filled?
