Find the Factors That Effect Current Propane Prices

Posted on September 12th, 2017

Propane or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is widely used in the US, as it is proven efficient, environmentally friendly, and economical for cooking, heating, and drying applications at home. However, you might be wondering about the factors effecting pricing, especially when you compare the prices of different retailers in your area and in other cities or states. It can be surprising to find that the price of propane for home may be different than the average residential price. Here are the factors that can effect LPG pricing:

Fees and services from the provider

A retailer will offer you a price that can come with or without a number of services. Automatic delivery is standard in almost all providers, along with fixed prices for an agreed amount of time. A monthly budget payment plan should make propane for home reasonably priced in the long run, as it eliminates your need to pay for propane in one go. If you want to save money, consider your fuel usage. If you are on automatic delivery but you only order when the fuel level reaches 20 to 30 percent, you may want to ask the supplier their cost per gallon for the service, and compare that with national or state averages to make sure that it is reasonable.

Some propane suppliers may charge for tank rent, system leak test, regulatory, installation, special delivery or emergencies, and late payments. Be sure to ask for a breakdown of expenses to know exactly what you are paying for each month. Propane retailers will differ in their prices, but most of them are competitive and will try to beat one another. However, avoid choosing a retailer based solely on the price. Compare their payment plans and verify the quality of their services by making sure that they are dependable with 24/7 emergency services, repair services, and reliable customer service. That way, you can be sure that you can get the best value for your money when you choose a reputable business.

Region and climate, and crude oil prices

Climate variations will effect the prices of propane for home use. This means LPG typically costs higher in winter and in the cold months because more people need it. Moreover, considering that the fuel is a byproduct of crude oil, the prices of crude oil will naturally affect the price you are paying for it.
