Propane in general is a crock! It is a by product from natural gas, and a refinery will burn it off by the millions of gallons daily directly into the air. For some reason with the way our country is today, they are able to sell their "waist", to regular ole folks at a high and taxable price, seems to me if they can just burn off millions of gallons daily, they should be giving it away for free. Just another way for the rich man to get richer by charging people for doing the earth and his company a favor. Gotta love this broken capitalism way of thinking!

Propane price now is $1.19.


I heat with propane and have no complaints.


You say .........." they should be giving it away for free "......

??????????
Why ?


When a new road is built or a development is cleared, trees are considered a nuisance .
Sometimes trees are bulldozed to the side , stacked on a big pile and set on fire.


Does that mean if I heat with wood I should expect them to cut, split, dry, load, haul, and deliver the fuel to my house for free ?
