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...

Happy New Year well at least we all hope it will be a happy one.  Propane pricing is just a little higher than it was at the start of December.  It moved around for a bit in December now slightly higher than when we started last month. Slight weather flip flop from relatively warm the...

Since my November Newsletter the price of propane is up slightly but at this point it’s fairly close to the price it was the first part of November. In my last Newsletter I was hoping for a freezing cold November. No such luck. I know you’re all thinking “Ya wasn’t it great” being so warm...

Propane Prices The rise in propane prices has slowed since my last newsletter but has still increased about five cents per litre in October. Now oil has moved around a bit but not enough to justify these increases I thought so I started to investigate a little. Goes like this. Usually in the summer months...

Since my last correspondence the price of propane has risen steadily and is up about ten cents per litre from the May 2017 pricing.  As if misery loves company natural gas, oil and electricity have also risen.  Tough to catch a break as a consumer these days. My Sweetheart and I were planning to travel...
There was a slight bit of propane price movement up and down during April, but it has basically stayed steady. Now I know that steady isn’t as good as down, but it’s a whole lot better than up. I remarked to one of my staff the other day that I wish my truck was more...
