Well, with the non-winter almost over I am really looking forward to spring, if for no other reason than to dry up all the mud and slop. Should you have had the occasion to visit us at our offices on Clyde Rd. I hope you didn’t get swallowed up by the pot holes in the...

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...

Through the month of December, the price of propane started to fall with eight consecutive decreases in a row. Mind you, they were minor decreases which didn’t add up to a big number! On December 29th there was an increase, which by comparison was quite large, wiping out a significant part of the December decreases....

Every Fall I find myself in awe of the spectacular colours displayed by the trees, too bad November comes along and everything goes gray and drab. Propane prices have continued to bounce around. I suspect, due to all this unrest in the world which seems to affect everything. No downward pressure in prices yet. In...

As I have mentioned before, the price of propane generally follows the price of oil. This summer, the price of propane has risen along with oil and although the price of a barrel of oil has fallen lately, propane has only decreased marginally. There are many factors which affect the supply chain pricing, but when...

Lately my fingers have been stiff, I don’t know if it’s some kind of arthritis, or my joints are rusting from all the rain we have been getting. If it ever gets warm enough and the sun comes out, the grass will jump out of the ground. Too bad the ground is so soft and...

I almost hate to watch the business report on the news lately. Our dollar is at 3 cents over par with the US dollar, driving down export sales, which is sure to effect manufacturing jobs. Oil is trading at $105.00 per barrel and that drives the price of everything up. I saw in the paper...

There’s a lot of times I question the effectiveness and accountability of all our levels of government in this country, but I must say when you see what is going on around the world, thank God we live where we do. On the lighter side. Our daughter has provided my sweetheart and I with two...

This time of year I usually reprint some items pertinent to your propane tank and its ability to operate your system efficiently.  Considering the snow fall we just had, the timing of this is appropriate. Just a reminder – did you know for your propane system to maintain pressure in your system the liquid propane...
