I talked to a friend of mine in Missouri who reports that she was charged $5.17 per gallon for propane. That sounds pretty pricey. Have any of you experienced abnormally high prices for propane during the recent cold weather?

I will be checking prices tomorrow, with all the extreme cold weather I burned a lot of propane and my tank is down to 30%.

Our governor is seeking to make it a criminal offense to price gouge propane. Apparently it has been shipped out of the state and is now in short supply.

I don't like price controls, but fuel of any type should not be on the commodities exchange board. Speculators are driving up the price.

That is high, but not horrible. I could live with that.

I wonder how many businesses would produce propane at a loss?  Wink

Not wishing to change the subject but on fuel prices, why is it that diesel is now costing more than premium gas? Ten years ago diesel was much less than regular. I know the "low sulfur" requirement came in but dang, for those of us that went diesel for cars for efficiency and economy it is about a break even on cost per mile. Think of the trucking industry and their costs.
My rant and sorry.

In many states, diesel fuel is subject to an inordinate amount of road taxes due to it's use by commercial vehicles. At least that was how it was explained to me when I was raving about a price increase when I bought my first and last diesel car.

Probably makes a lot of sense I guess for commercial trucks that do beat up the highway. But my little VW is a lot lighter than a pickup! I will say here in Arizona if you stop at a truck stop they have two prices for diesel, one for trucks and one for the car pumps. About 5 cents a gallon cheaper for "cars". Still outrageous for cars especially compared to the difference between diesel and gas 10 years ago.

You can thank corporate greed, oil companies, speculation, and the increased demand by third world countries for high diesel prices.

Diesel price increases also occurred because of EPA restrictions on the fuel, with the last being the mandate of "low sulfur" diesel.

epa restrictions are falsely used to gouge the customer!  a blend of little bio-diesel brings the high sulfur down in compliance.  Same way they "opeckers" play games with ethanol buying corn futures. Why do I have an interest in this we have about a 150 acres 1/2 in corn, 1/2 in soy beans.
