Seems like a lot of repetitive information regarding the price of propane these last months.  March was the same, moved up and down some but just lately the price has started to creep down ever so slightly.  April 1st the Federal Carbon Tax is reinstated on your propane heating fuel at 3.1 cents per litre. ...

Propane News – February 2019 Propane pricing in January moved up and down some but the overall trend was up by more than a few pennies per litre.  Still compared to previous years I would say the price per litre is on the lower side.  Good thing to as it seems so many other expenses...

Where is the crystal ball when you need it? I have no inkling of expected price movement for the month ahead. With so many factors in...

Well, it’s been quite a summer. Propane prices have moved around slightly, but have stayed a little on the high side. The outlook is that they won’t come down and will probably rise some as the crop drying season gets into full swing with winter to follow directly after that. Do what you can to...
Holy ice storm, Batman! Wasn’t April an awful month. Stayed cold, wet, and icy. Now, you are probably thinking, why is my propane supplier complaining about cold weather? It has to be good for propane sales! Well, yes, it did extend our propane heating season by many weeks, for which I am grateful. But, just...

Propane prices started to back off some in late February and continued slowly throughout March. March certainly stayed cool or cold depending on your definition. It seems to this point this winter we have had four springs. You know temperature goes up considerably, ground turns to mud again then another freeze up. I think I’ll...

Propane prices stayed fairly stable for February, although higher than we would all like to see. Let’s hope they start going down in March. I understand the propane export market is still strong, which means the United States is shipping lots of propane across the Atlantic Ocean because prices are strong. That means prices will...

Here we are in the depths of winter. Well, one week it’s winter, the next week it’s spring, and the next week it’s winter again. Give me winter starting sometime in November and keep it winter until March. This up and down stuff just creates a ton of headaches. I know many of you would...
