We filled up on propane this summer. We have a 1000 gallon tank and they are only able to fill 80% of the tank because they need to leave room for expansion. I called and requested it and that's when the woman at Cenex told me they can only fill that much. Ok, that's fine. They actually filled us to only 70%. That might not sound like that big of a deal but it means that we might have to buy propane in the middle of winter when propane prices are much higher.
For our summer fill, we paid $1.74 per gallon. During the winter, propane can go as high as $3 per gallon but around the $2.50 mark is pretty common. I just got the bill for $1070 that is due in about a week. I will definitely need to transfer money out of savings to get that paid. It's expensive to live in the country where natural gas isn't available.
