Even around here, LP comes from Ontario, CA and it runs in concert with gasoline so, whatever pump gas is, the price of propane is usually 50-90 cents below that. I have 2 owned bottles and 2 rented bottles but my supplier charges me a buck a year bottle rental.LP delivery was yesterday. 291 [email protected]
That's up .10 from the last delivery on 1-20-2021. I'm 95% confident our LP comes from Canada so that disproves the Texas angle.
EDIT after the Sidecar Flip comment I'll add the first LP delivery for the current heating season on 11-25 was also 2.259.
Those numbers also represent a leased tank arrangement.
Politics aren't the issue here. So constantly making political jabs aren't helping your case.Far as 'Kool Aid' goes, When fuel prices are going up like a rocket ship, that tells me something is seriously wrong in DC and I'll leave it at that.
Easy to see what side of the fence Dataman is on and it's not my side either.
The midwest gets great price breaks on LP. That's wishful thinking in our county. Add a dollar or more to those numbers. Note that the EIA doesn't even include western states in its chart. Florida also has high propane prices while neighbor Alabama does not. What's with that?Here in WI, LP prices are trending downwards after spiking around the beginning of March. The screen capture below is from here:

Most likely and for some reason I never understood, the energy costs increase the closer you get to the West coast and the East Coast, I've always wonder about that.That's wishful thinking in our county. Add at least a dollar to those numbers.
Georgia and New York have much lower LP prices than FL too. There is no govt. regulation of heating oil or propane prices so this may be just getting away with what they can charge. If one goes 60 miles north of Seattle, propane prices are at least $1.50/gal less.Most likely and for some reason I never understood, the energy costs increase the closer you get to the West coast and the East Coast, I've always wonder about that.
Nope, in terms of oil reserves the US ranks 9th, and in terms of natural gas the US ranks 4th. Not anywhere close to having more reserves than anywhere else.In this country we have more oil and NG reserves that anywhere else.
Bottom line is, it's 100% political, like it or not.
Well according to your own government the US is 10th in oil reserves and 4th in natural gas reserves. Clearly this must be an error due to "the current administration" and "politics in DC".I don't buy that at all. But then you are Canadian and so yours is always more.
I don't grow corn or beans or wheat. Never have. I'm a professional forage grower. I sell to feedlots. I like the forage business. Much less headaches. Less equipment costs too.I do wonder how sidecar sets his price on field corn at the elevator
Same here, except I have four legged harvesters eat mine. Even way less inputs than what you have since they don't require petroleum to run. I always thought you were a row crop farmer because you are always talking about the "free" corn that you get and the propane for your grain dryers. That's another subject for another day though.I don't grow corn or beans or wheat. Never have. I'm a professional forage grower. I sell to feedlots. I like the forage business. Much less headaches.

No, because it's either in bags or super sacks, so it would have to be broken down. One thing I have to deal with. I return the super sacks and the skids they are on but the sealed Tyvek sacks I have to dispose of myself as they are not reusable. Everything goes through the automated packing line. I usually have a roast in the spring... just had one actually. Was a mild winter, I have a full ton left over and a couple ton of pellets.That's a pretty sweet deal you have going then. Won't the elevator take it ?
Of course it's not at all political. I find it interesting that none of this came about until the new administration got 'installed'. Then 'wham', everything went through the roof.... But it's not political right?
You first post was not to make it political about fuel prices . Your not helping yourself sidecar .Of course it's not at all political.
