It's going to be cold here next week, it may snow or at least I hope so, if it's going to be cold it may as well snow. I love snow cream. The man I buy LP from is not trying to get rich off of me, he is just passing his costs off to me and I don't blame him or anyone for that matter, I blame the weather, IT IS SOOOOOOO COLD!!!!!! I went outside wearing just flipflops on my feet and it sure was cold on my feet. It will not be long before I will be at Myrtle Beach.
Well it snowed here and it sure was cold for a while longer, my propane has did alright but my electric bill may be a little high with the two electric heaters I put in C/C. But hey I got to eat a lot of snow cream, I made about 5 batches and I put some in the freezer for later. This summer when the price goes down a little I will fill up my 100gl tank and have camper ready for next year. We don't get much snow in Warsaw,NC and it don't get too cold here, this was just a odd year

I keep the heat on in my C/C 30RL in the winter, what do you think would be the best to keep the slides in or out. DW says to keep the slides in and that way I don't have as much floor space to heat. Before the propane went up and it got really cold I kept the slides out but when it snowed I pulled the slides in. Propane is still high and of course my money is still short. I am just glad beer has not gone up

Hush on the beer going up- it's high enough now and we don't need to give the brewers another reason to raise it more.

The big question now is 'will it come back down' now that it is known people will pay whatever they charge for it.

It's going up, since all the home owners that use propane are starting to drink...

I heard yesterday that our very smart politicians are going to launch an investigation on the spike in propane prices....what waste of $$$. It's called supply and demand.

Companies gave a thing called overhead that doesn't change. They make money by selling a product.If there is less product to sell they make less so they need to charge more to pay their overhead. There is also profitability in there somewhere, we do have a free market after all.
I think that's a pretty simple explanation with a broad stroke of a brush. I understand that there is exceptions.
Depending on inventory and usage I would imagine it would probably drop some in the summer.

You just have to look at today's price of fuel compared to what it was before this so called fuel shortage and embargo came about and there's your answer.

That's good - Hope it's not true.

Just read in today's TIME magazine that we are competing with sales to Europe, where they get a better price. It says sales to Europe doubled in 2013 over 2012. Also said Midwest farmers used a lot last fall on drying a wetter than usual corn crop.
