And here I thought at $22 for a completely empty 30 LB tank in Albuquerque a couple of weeks ago at the Route 66 Casino RV Park.

In Denver I was paying over $30 per 30 LB tank at Amerigas.

Tractor Supply seems to be the best around us !!!
We have a 500 gallon tank in our backyard,,, when I have a empty tank I just ask driver to fill it for me !!! Last year one of the delivery guys filled the tank on our MH !!!
I think it was 1.19 then ???
Can"t beat t!!!

Prices do vary a cross country. Most recently paid 3.25 and 3.40 per gallon in northern illinois this spring at rv parks. Quite a difference from a year ago.

Propane $$

Here in San Jose, CA
I just paid $25.00 to fill a 20# tank @ the local tool supply / rental store. This is the cheapest price in the area, welcome to J. Brown (gov) screwing CA again...
Also FYI current gas prices in the bay area are $3.79 / gal for reg. unleaded. So for anyone coming west be prepared.
Take care,
Bob

Somethingís not right here. When did you buy your propane at Gideon King? That is the closest Amish hardware store to Spring Gulch, so I assumed thatís where you were talking about. It is on Elam Rd. Is that where you went? This is where I am getting propane for .35 per pound. You should have paid only $28.00 for 80# of propane there if it was in the last few weeks. I just bought 60# there on Saturday and it cost me $21.00.

Does it really matter? two 30 pound tanks more then last me a whole season. worrying about the price of propane is like worrying about the price of gas. When you need it you need it.

Yes, it matters. Why do you think I asked? It looks like the only person here worried about anything is you.

I get my 30# tanks filled at the local propane dealer for $26.00 which works out to be $0.87 per pound. The dealer I bought and have my trailer serviced by charges $22.50 for a 30# tank filling but the are 30 miles one way verses 5 one way so I use my the local propane dealer which also supplies it form my house.

I think my point was as little as it cost and as little as it purchased I'm not going to waste my time or energy driving around trying to save 10 cents.

It like driving 10 miles out of the way to save 5 cents on a gallon of gas when you are getting 10 miles to the gallon. Unless you can hold 100 gallons of gas you just lost money.

I fill my tanks at home, I usually pay around $1.00 as I fill my home tank in September or early October before winter prices start kicking in. Divided by 4.2,
is about .24 per gallon, no sales tax on home heating fuel.

In Casa Grande, AZ, it has been $2.07/gal (+ sales tax!) at Norris RV for a couple years. At home in Montana, I filled my 500 gal tank for $1.05/gal and I have a wet tap that allows me to fill my own smaller 20 and 30# tanks. Sadly the hose won't reach my 20 gal tank on the motor home.

I got it Sat of Mother's Day weekend, should have been $40 not $49 and yes Gideon the young boy filled them and rung me up inside. Guess you got a better deal. Still cheaper then at home at Tractor Supply they are getting $2.99 a gallon.

We just filled a 24 gallon tank today at the U-Haul in Fayetteville, NC. At 2.49.9 per gallon the total came to 39.00 and change. And the tank was not completely empty.

Within the last 6 weeks, I've paid $2.05/gal at an RV storage yard in Mesquite, NV, $2.18 at a propane dealer (who fills home tanks) in Hurricane, UT, and $3.58 at a propane dealer in Kanab, UT.

The gas station at Jacob Lake, AZ, where the road to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon starts from, wants $4.04 right now. Kanab and Jacob Lake are quite isolated, so I expect prices to be high. Where I've been camping at Jacob Lake, it's 55 miles to the nearest grocery store and 120 to a Walmart, so the gas station has you over a barrel for everything.

Over the past few months boondocking in Arizona, Southern California and Nevada, I've always found UHaul to be the cheapest in every town where there is one that sells propane.

Northern Kentucky Tractor Supply was $2.30 per gallon. They scale volume.

Here in Rhode Island I filled (completely empty)one of our 30lb tanks last month it was $23.
Not sure if that’s high/low compared to other suppliers here in my area, I just use the RV dealer we purchased our trailer from. They do all the service on it for me and have treated me well so I don’t mind going back to them when I need stuff.
Plus they are 3-miles away!
