Was in Belleville, Kansas last week. A 30lb bottle fill was $19.50.....I think that was about $8.00 less than here in OK a couple months ago.

Up here in Nova Scotia at Costco which is the cheapest place. I pay $0.63 per pound which on a completely empty tank works out to about 15 bucks with taxes.

Mntguy, I'm not sure if Amerigas is still on High. I go to their main office/building that is on 250 E just outside of C'ville. Go up Pantops and after you go under I-64 they are located about a 1/2 mile on the left.

I have never heard of a flat rate for propane around here, I cant remember how much per gallon, but the last time I filled up I was pretty much empty with both 30# tanks, filled up it was around $37. It seems that everyone is getting in on the exchange tanks, but I would rather keep my tanks and fill them at a propane dealer, knowing how my tanks are handled and stored is worth a lot to me.

Last fill here for an empty 30# was $16.50, not bad I think.

The TT I had (two campers ago) had registered 30lb tanks. Registered in the sense that they were a matched set (serial numbers) and the numbers were registered to that VIN somehow. When I bought it, I was told to NOT exchange those tanks because of the registration. Since there aren't 30lb exchanges that I am aware of, it worked out. Long story short: I couldn't exchange those tanks and always had to have them filled. I think that is a better deal anyway, because it is on a scale and you pay for the gas you get instead of a flat fee for a tank that may or may not be full. Around my area for a 20lb BBQ grill sized tank you'll pay about 19 or 20 for a refill, and about 24-25 for an exchange.

Our local dealer fills the portable bottles at a flat rate also. He has been doing this for ever. Not sure how he gets away with doing it but he does. I thing right now the price is about 15 bucks.

Staying at Wild duck Campground in Scarborough, Maine. The gas company comes around every Saturday morning, if you need gas you just wave down the truck and they fill your gas at your camper;$20.00. My local hardware store in NH charges $15.00. These prices are for a 20lbs bottle.
