Propane Price Update

Dear Valued Customer,

Much of the country is in a short-term energy crisis right now.
Natural gas prices, electricity rates and oil prices all spiked amid the widespread blackouts in Texas and the bitter-cold temperatures that have gripped much of the country in recent weeks.

Unfortunately, propane prices haven’t been immune to these market forces.

Wholesale propane prices have nearly doubled over just the last few weeks. We’ve taken great pains to pass as little of that increase to our customers as possible. The retail price you are now paying does not fully reflect the increase we’re seeing in wholesale costs.

This is much like when the price of coffee, milk or any commodity rises. It’s not the local supermarket that is profiting. The sooner prices drop, the happier we’ll be.

Some Good News

Most energy experts agree that the current situation is a temporary market condition. They expect prices to drop by early spring.
