40 cents a pound, here in New Holland, PA. That equates to about $1.71 per gallon.

Paid $1.69 here in western NY last fall. Of course that was the bulk $ being as I have the delivery truck top off the MH each fall when he fills the 500gl tank at the house.

Same thing at the local U-Haul in Lexington, KY. I thought the price of propane would go down with the gas price reduction, but not here. At least I don't have a propane fueled generator anymore.

Roy Robinson RV sells propane. It is located behind the rv store/sales office. Can't miss it. Not sure of price.

Tractor supply is usually cheaper I paid 1.89 per gal in northern Ky. but you may want to call ahead some locations will not fuel motorhome tanks and some can be difficult to get into with a big rig. All will fill smaller tanks if you have a extend a stay or similar adaptor.

Here in WA the law requires that all propane be sold by the gallon using a pressure pump since the pressure varies with the temp and the pump ensures accurate quantities.

If you have the prefilled tanks at stores be aware that most of them "short fill" the tank. You get a 5 gal tank but it only 4 gallons in it, that's what they do here and the labels do show the lower weight but most people don't notice it. Just like the cereal boxes that look big but contain less than you think although now the boxes are shrinking and they STILL contain less!

It is my impression that a 5 gallon propane tank should only hold 4 gallons. Need vapor room. But you shouldn't pay for 5 gal of propane.

Propane tanks are required by law to be filled to 80% capacity. In fact all tanks since sometime in the mid 2000 have overfill protection builtin.

Yes, propane tanks get filled to 80%. Been like that for ever.

It's just over the last 15 year's, a monkey can fill them, since the OPD. (overfill protection device ) was installed. Too many tanks were being over filled and venting in Moms trunk.

A 20# tank hold 4.7 gallons of LPG, equaling 20#. They used to fill the tanks on a scale.

The exchange tanks are filled to 15# , a "marketing decision", according to Blue Rino. (Check their web site ). When Blue Rino started, they filled to 17# , they said, due to transport issues.
