Well, I’m scratching my head as I watch the price of propane continue to rise. The gate price for propane is as high now as it was in December 2011. I watch the market reports each day and take notice of many things, but the price of oil is an important one. I’m scratching my...

Although the price of propane fell slightly over the summer months, it started to climb again around the middle of august and is back up to the level it was in early March of this year. I talked in a previous article about new gas reserves coming on line from a process called fracking.  This...

The price of propane for now is staying relatively steady. The price isn’t low, but it’s not as high as we’ve seen it, either. Let’s hope the price of all fuels goes down over the summer. Although, I won’t hold my breath. So, the other day, my sweetheart was looking after our four-year-old grandson, probably...

Well, the price of propane continues to bounce around, a little up and a little down. As of writing this newsletter, the price of propane is slightly higher than it was this time last year.
 Lots of gas exploration going on with fracking in shale rock to access the naturally trapped natural gas and propane....

The price of propane has been rising steadily through February, with nine price increases and only one decrease. As of the end of February, propane pricing is slightly higher than it was at the end of February last year. Considering the mild winter we had last year, I guess we can rationalize the difference. I’m...

Propane pricing continues to fluctuate, although since the middle of January the increases have been coming regularly. Propane pricing for the start of February 2013 is roughly where it was at the start of 2012. These extreme fluctuations in the weather create all sorts of challenges for our propane support staff. Things like, one day...

A nearly two-week long blockade of a railway line in Sarnia, Ont., was being dismantled Wednesday night just hours after an Ontario judge ruled that it must come down. Lawyers for CN Rail launched court action against Ron Plain, a member of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, alleging that he was in contempt of an injunction...

I wish I had better news to start off 2014 with, but wishing and hoping doesn’t make it so. The price of propane continues to climb to levels I haven’t seen since 1999, with no slow down in sight. Conserve where you can, and pray the price starts to fall back to more reasonable levels....

The price of propane has remained relatively low throughout the fall and at this point it would appear it should remain low for sometime.  The demand on propane for crop drying usually drives the price up but this year did very little to increase market prices.  Let’s hope it stays that way all winter. I’ve...

The price of propane was down until the end of July, but since then it has been climbing slowly. It is still considerably lower than it was this time last year, which is a good thing. I came to realize that the Propane Newsletter which is included in monthly statements for residential heat customers between...
