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.

My brother paid 36 cents a gallon for a tanker load last month.  I think that's 8,000 gallons.

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.

I paid $1.99 per gallon yesterday for 7.3 gallons in my 30 lb. tank, came to $15.54 after $1.01 tax.  I found out later that was the most expensive place in town.  Others had it for $1.69.

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
