Cheap Propane

50 posts in this topic

Just filled up a 30lb propane tank at Costco in Calgary and I almost fainted when the guy told me the cost would be $12.59. I'm still not sure I believe it!! Anyone konw if the US stores have similar prices? The lowest I have found anywhere was about $15 US in Yuma last year but this new price beats even that. Anyone else ogt this kind of pricing at Costco or was this some kind of fluke?

I paid $14.50 to fill a 30 lb cylinder in Upstate NY last week. Our fuel buying co-op price to fill our cottage bulk tank is currently about $1.45/gallon.

The cheapest propane we have found was at Costco in Moncton, N.B. $ 21 for 40 lbs. but they charged only for what they put in and not just on the size of the tank like many do.

I just paid $1.25 per gallon coming out of Bend OR. I saw the sign by the side is the road offering $1.25 propane and couldn't hit the brakes fast enough. Good thing there was a second drive into the hardware store.

Paid $29.69 for filling 30 pound tank at Menard's Northwestern Illinois yesterday. Compares to $2.78 Regular gas and $2.54 Diesel

Everything maybe bigger in Texas but in Illinois everything is expensive.

Today paid .99 a gallon for Suburban propane at Tillamook RV Repair in Tillamook, OR. All up and down Hwy 101 in the area places were charging about $2.50 a gallon. Glad I checked around. Owner shared with me he pays .81 a gallon. Cheap prices gets folks in his showroom/parts store. I perceive a value!!!! :D

soos, I wish Tractor Supply with their two new stores in Yuma would put in propane tanks. It would make another competitor, but I'm not sure they could compete against the fill places that during the prime time winter months pump about 2200 gallons a day.

Dave W. I guess Bretz still has that deal going on. We were in Missoula Tuesday and Wednesday but didn't need propane or I would have checked it out for sure.
