Propane.

Last week Amerigas sent me a bill for "$112 subscription fee".
I called Amerigas and they explained the "fee"was to lock in my propane price to $3.699/gallon for the winter.

Well that tripped me off, and I finally got the kick in the butt I needed.

I checked a couple of websites comparing local propane prices, and scrolled backwards.

It looked like Bi-State had the best price history, they seemed tobe about $0.65 below Amerigas on average, so I called them, I also notified my landlord that lives next door that I was changing propane supplier.

Long story short, today Bi-State swapped out the tanks, and filled my new tank for $1.93/gallon.
For the next year I will pay $2.63/gallon.

Not only that, but my landlord decided to change provider, so I got a $50 credit as "referral bonus".

A good day in the neighborhood.

If only they'd fill my bbq bottle for $1.93 a gallon...or my truck ran on propane.

We have propane out here and I use eagle energy cause their cheaper than bistate! When I get filled I leave all my BBQ and camp propane bottles out and they fill them for same price and add it to my bill!

Yes, but it is unpractical to haul down a 250 gallon tank there....
