Where is the loewst price for Propane?

Recommended Posts

I can get my 20# tank filled for less than $10.00 up at Osakis bait shops.
Just wondering why they charge so much here in the cities?
The cheapest I found is around $17.00.
What gives? Is the propane better here or what? mad.gif

Yes FINLANDER propane is better down here. it has less travel time in the pipe making it purer and more odiferace and of a highly better grade. It is well worth the extra price considering the additional BTU's. You will find you only need to fill your propane bottle half as many times. In fact it may be worth the time to drive down from Osakis to fill in the cities :rolleyes

I find the U-Haul store in east St. Cloud to be the cheapest around here. I last paid around $8 to fill a 20-pounder.

Where is the U-haul post in St. Cloud. For how much propane I use during the season it would be nice to save a few bucks.

Uhaul in St. Cloud is on east side off HighWay 10 right by Burger King.. I also think they are the best price for the area...

Hate to say it, but only 3.95 for a twenty pounder,
19.75 for a hundred pounder here.
.84 a gallon into my 500 gallon tank and we refill the small bottles from it.
4.7 gallons in a twenty,
23.6 in a hundred.

I second the U-Haul post, the one by my house will fill a 1/2 full tank and only charge you for the amount of gas they gave you, not the full price as if it was empty.

Good topic...although instead of just listing the cheapest, can anyone post what and where they are paying for the propane...this may help people not only find less expensive propane, but closer locations than they might have thought.

It's about $8 for a 20 lb. at the places which fill them and $13 on up at the exchanges in Cambridge.

Well the best prices aren't at LeRoy's in Bloomington. I went there out of convenience for the first and last time. 5# tank and costed me $9. $2.35/lb.

Anyone know how many lbs are in a gallon for propane?

It's interesting that propane is sold primarily by the lb. vs gallon. I recently reloacted here from AZ and I have a 1/2 ton truck I run on propane or gasoline. LP in AZ was, on average, $1.10/gal. By far cheaper than gasoline. I have a 60gal LP tank in the box of the truck and seldom get to use it here as the LP prices here in the Metro are out of line. Most cases are $2.00/gal (4lbs/gal). What is up with that?? Especailly when gasoline is $1.45 on avg and I get 14 mpg w/LP and 16 mpg w/gasoline. Anyway, I've found in Litchfield that LP is $1.35/gal and when in Princeton it was $1.35-$1.39/gal. Otherwise all the other places in the metro I've tried to find is pretty much in the $10-12 per 20lb tank. I appreciate any tips on cheaper propane. I like paying $1.30/gal of LP vs. $1.45 for gasoline.

TNT4ME - That's a great price on propane for your 500 gallon tank! Who's your gas supplier? Do you own your own tank? What's your secret. Best price I could get my tank filled for was .989/gallon on a pre-buy.
