Last week we sold to are customers that had done mower conversions and vehicle conversions around 1.89a gallon. We are in Texas so no clue what they are trying to get up there. Also may want to investigate this phrase when you ask a propane company there. What is your laid in cost a gallon and then work it out from there.

Paid 1.69 gallon in Pa, heat my shop with propane. I also own the tank that does make a difference in price.

Talk to the local suppliers. Large difference in price from bulk home propane price compared to tank exchanges, and volume bought. If volume is high a local supplier would of gave a refueling station on my site with some really good rates. I would of needed to convert my trucks to get enough volume though.

Reason I say talk to the suppliers of propane is if they are not a good fit it won't be worth it.

Gasoline is about 3.75 here in Ohio. I would never have guessed it would be triple propane cost. I figured propane would be about 1.90, or about half of gasoline. Wow.
