I live in N. NJ and the home I bought came with a 500 gal tank owned by Suburban Propane - thus I am locked into buying their propane. I'd prefer to own my own 1000 gal tank so I could buy propane independently. Or I could buy this tank from Suburban and then end my contract. I am so tired of paying Suburban. They are the reason I burn wood now. Still, I have a propane HWH and Gas dryer (which I could replace with an electric dryer and HWH - rural electric is cheap). I was last filled in October and they came yesterday. I used 183 gallons from October til February. Not bad. It's been a cold winter and some of that was for heat - but mostly I am pleased with my ability to reduce my consumption of propane by burning wood. Suburban is not stupid, they can see I am burning wood now and they are no longer going to get $ 5000 a year from me. I really feel they are taking atvantage of me. So, what do you think is a reasonable price per gallon of delivered LP to a homeowner with a dealer owned 500 gallon tank? What do you pay per gallon? I'd really like to know what is the average or what is reasonable.
