    ..........I've got 20% left in my 500 gallon tank . I'm TOO scared to call the local gas company that I do businrss with here in North central texas. I only fillup once ayear and they will usually let me pay the cost out over 90 days . To get the Best( :waa: ) price I have to purchase 150 gallons which is really more than I want so "ll just hang on thru the end of this month and see what the gas gauge says ... fordy.. :)

    Got my 500 gallon tank filled (with 438 gallons!!!!) on Dec. 13. It cost about $1.10/gallon (I was very happily surprised). It was about $.90 in mid-July. If I can afford it, I'm going to try contracting 500 gallons next summer for winter delivery. All I can say is THANK GOD for corn furnances!

    The company I deal with offers a contract price in July,so this year we locked in at 1.37 which is an Ag. rate here with no tax.But heating greenhouses when its real cold like last week really burns some propane....................and today it's almost 60 deg...................
