While I was at the VA Hospital the other day, two nurses
were complaining so about the price of propane
were using $4.00 a gallon in their complaint. That was
hard for me to believe. They were trying to figure out how
much it takes and how long it lasts.
I told them I had a thousand gallon tank. And they responded,
"That's $4,000 to fill up." I told them under normal conditions,
one tank lasts me a winter. I was having a hard time believing
that fuel is $4.00 a gallon. Maybe Arkansas was sticking it to
them. I pass a propane
company on the way over, but didn't
take notice. But I did on the way home. $4.40 a gallon....WOW.
From $1.89 a gallon to $4.40 a gallon. What a shock.
Wife told me everyone on Facebook was really complaining.
This week it has gone down to $3.90 a gallon. But it was rumored
to go up Thursday this week. I think I have 250 gallons or so left,
so am hoping it will last until the price goes to somewhere normal,
if it does.
Is this regional, or are others finding this problem relevant to your
area? It's said they're sending our propane
up north and raising
our prices. There's no way to really know what really goes on any
more. I was driving truck when we could only get 35 gallons of
diesel at a time because there was a so called shortage...........
