When gas prices went up to 4 bucks a gallon last spring and summer I also saw a similiar increase in propane.

I filled up the rig yesterday with propane and I thought, incorrectly of course, because gas had gone down, so would propane.

They got slightly over $4 a gallon from me--- what's up?

Hey, I'm still in my one hour time limit to add/change a post-- Sorry, I was at a propane business called Patetown/Dixie in Goldsboro NC.
They service homes and businesses.

Was it a campground that you filled up at?

We were quoted 4 dollars at a campground in Florida two weeks ago so we waited and got propane at Flying J for 2.99

The following is from the U.S. Department of Energy:



Even though low-volume "spot" RV sales prices will be higher than residential sales prices, $4.00/gallon doesn't look very justifiable!

Paid $2.49/gallon in Tucson last week. Delivered, they wanted $3.30 to deliver to the site. Since we have a fifth wheel with portable tanks, we simply took the propane tank elsewhere to have it filled up.

You're probably referring to a 20 pound tank. Depending on your source, that holds from 4.1 to 5 gallons, with 4.7 gallons being the most commonly accepted figure. $17.99 / 4.7 = $3.83/gallon.

I recently paid $2.85 at a propane suppliers yard.

He also filled my 20 pound BBQ tank for the same $2.85

I usually look to Flying J to fill on the road, usually a $.05 per gallon discount with RV card.
