So from what I'm reading the current pricing isn't really all that different in CA vs. other areas, i.e. pricing seems more dependent on things like urban vs. rural area, etc., (as it usually is) instead of a state line.

Man, it's a shame how quickly a California-bashing thread can be ruined by facts.

Someone has to foot the bill for the illegals hopping the fence to give birth to their American offspring! It just kills me that I have to pay as well.

I don't think anyone was bashing CA but that state has some of the most aggressive laws when it comes to the environment. Which can contribute to higher prices for things like fuel. Not saying its a bad thing but when you stipulate better emmisions etc it cost money to achieve that. So its pretty reasonable to expect most things to be more expensive in CA.

No fear- I think it unlikely that most will pay any attention to the facts...

Well, I haven't posted -
My answer to the question would have been "BECAUSE it's California "

beautiful state for the most part,
but I have no fear of bashing the poor decision making of those in charge in Kalifornia

We just paid $2.32 in Morgan City, Losing-Annie while celebrating Mardi Gras

If I need propane, I get it.
20 gallons at 2 buck vs 4 bucks is an extra 40 bucks.
And nuthin I can do about it.
But if you amortize it over the year, its only worth a few happy meals.
Happy trails!

We've been regular purchases of propane over the last few years, as we've spent a couple of winters in trailers/RV's using propane for heat.

In RI we've paid:

- $3.10/gallon at the RV superstore. This is the best price around the area. When we're in RI, I will usually fill up here and also dump our tanks for $9.00

- $3.65/gallon at UHaul. This is a lower rate than I pay for propane when bringing the gas grill tanks in

In CT, pricing really varies:

- $6.99/gallon !! at one of the gas stations in my hometown. They are also an International Truck dealer and I can't believe the pricing there. I filled up once there, not asking the price before hand and it cost $120+ for just over 17 gallons. On average we pay between $50 - $60 to fill our tank. Needless to say, I will never get propane here again unless it's a last resort. At that price, it pays to drive a few extra miles to the UHaul or Hocon gas dealer.

- $3.32/gallon at a (near) local UHaul, again paying a rate that is lower than the rate when bringing in a gas grill tank

- $2.75/gallon at a propane dealer. This is a company that is in the business of providing propane - they have a fleet of trucks (and locations) around the state that deliver propane to homes. It only cost me $52.25 to fill up with 19 gallons of propane. This was the most propane we have ever filled with. The employee filled it right to the maximum the tank would take.

As for propane, here in Dayton, OH it's right around $2.00.

Zone pricing- according to the folks at Marathon Oil. We have a terminal near my home. Colonial Pipeline has given us opportunities to meet the employees(1.8 million gallons of fuel in a river) and we asked why the prices varied so much across the country and across the same state.
Zone pricing was the answer.
