LPG price differences and taxes ?

Post by itsmejto » Sat May 27, 2006 8:14 pm

What are the differences, if any, in taxes between propane for your barbQ and your RV or fork lift truck or home heating. Is there a tax differential for one or the other. Which is which. How many of you using it for motor fuel have actually asked if you are getting HD-5 propane ? I was quoted today in North Carolina, a price of $1.86 per gallon at U-Haul of all places. That's a lot less than I paid at a local seller "Apex Propane" who wanted $2.50 per gall. Seems there isn't enough competition to get prices to even out. What/where are you paying ? There is definately a lot of interest in LPG vehicles in my area (NC has the highest gasoline taxes in the USA)

48cents is a smoking deal

Propane prices vary wildly around here, with the cheapest being a particular propane company in the next county, followed by every other propane company, and then the most expensive are the resellers such as mom 'n pop gas stations and truck stops.

The particular propane company that I mentioned is regularly $.25/gal cheaper than anyone else! When I asked them why this is so, the man said it's because they don't have a lot of overhead. They sell in bulk and don't do anything (appliances, etc) except sell propane. They won't come out to your place to do anything but a complete fill up and they require you to use at least 400 gallons per year. Once I get my Mustang sorted out and start driving it a lot, I think I'll get a tank from these folks.

About the price, when I last called these folks (2-3 months ago when it was still cold out) they quoted me something like $1.70/gal and offered a fixed price of $1.30/gal for a year for new accounts. I know last year during the heat of summer their lowest price was somewhere around $1.20/gal, and during the winter the highest it got was around $2.10/gal.
