Go figure.
In some parts of the country, they are indeed all over, There are other areas where they almost don't exist. In some places, the local ordinances make it prohibitively expensive to open a propane filling station. I mentioned to the owner of one in Naples Florida how lucky he was not to have any competition. He responded that he wanted to move to a new location, half a mile away, but the permitting process would cost him $20,000.

Remember if you change from 20 to 30 the slide out rack may not support the added weight of 30 lb bottles They may be to tall for excess door
