propane prices

Here in south Louisiana, Tractor Supply will fill a 5 gallon tank for {as of 1 week ago} $12.50 most independant locations around here are closer to $20.00 for a 5 gal tank. Hope this helps.....Ro

Flying J usually does mine, much cheaper than anywhere else. Last time I was filled at Flying J it was $2.25 a gallon, vs local Ace hardware at $4.25 a gallon.

We use very little propane, maybe filling a 30lb tank twice a year. So all I care about is convenience. If I spend $5 more per fill up, so be it. On a Pareto chart of camping costs, diesel fuel and campsites get my attention.

$11.50 for a 20lb tank at Costco in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) That's canadian, so around $8.50 US

Our experience has been that Tractor Supply has the cheapest price in the area. Of course, like gasoline or diesel, propane prices vary area to area.

Just explore where you can get propane around your area, prices vary greatly.

I always prefer the 'per gallon' cost and not a tank price.

With gas/diesel prices up now also if you drive very far to save a few cents on propane you will have lost any savings plus more in fuel.
Just buy at the park or the closest spot, if a couple bucks a year in propane is a huge expense then rving was the wrong pastime to get into.

I never exchange. When you do you almost always only get 15 lbs. in a 20 lb tank. The only time I do is when the tank is out of date and I want a newer tank. Whether it's by the lb or gallon makes no difference just price accordingly. If you exchange at $19 you are really paying $25 equivilent to filling the tank. I pay $2.85/gal in GA to have it filled vs $1.40 for bulk at my s&b in NY. I also have a 100# tank at my winter base and that costs $60 to fill or about $2.50 per gal.
20# tank = 4.7 gal
30# tank = 7.1 gal
