    You're lucky, I had to pay 1.75. We won't be filling the tank too often, I can tell you. :grump:

    I paid 1.25 a month before Katrina and I fill once every summer thank God. And now I hear of gas prices for winter heating going up by as much as 73% in the midwest this winter. I sit back in comfort and have no worries, wood is cut and stacked and ready to burn. Whew!

    Michigan - I locked in at $1.59 without having to prepay for the propane. I've heard people paying at least 30 cents more. Fuel oil at $2.50 a gallon. I was fortunate last year to lock my new vendor in at 89 cent a gallong for propane. That savings paid for half of new corn stove. :)

    I heard on the news less than a hour ago that the "guvment" says natural gas will go up 48% this winter and heating oil, 30-40%.

    We switched to wood. It's a renewable resource and we have good family time going out and cutting it.

    Just found the last delivery ticket for propane we had delivered dated September 9th. It was $1.699 per gallon. I'm afraid to guess what it is now. Drove by our local gas station earlier today and the kerosene pump was listed at $3.09 per gallon. I guess we won't be burning the kerosene heaters much this winter as back up.

    $1.69 a week ago.

    I think it's funny that on the local news they were talking about people rushing out to buy wood stoves. They said that firewood prices would be going up also! :rolleyes:

    Had my 300 gallon tank filled from 50% to 80%...

    at $2.00 a gallon. It was $1.79 last winter, at the end.

    Oh well. Maybe NOW hubby will understand the importance of having a wood stove in an area where it gets to 20 below zero AND the power goes out with some regularity?

    On the plus side, electricity is really really cheap, so I may go ahead and invest in some space heaters for those "I'm chilly but no one else is" nights. Anyone know of a good space heater that's made in the USA?

    Monday I prepaid for 600 gallons at $1.90 per gallon. Before I did this I called three other places in the area. One wanted $1.92, one $1.97, and another $2.12. DH says he thinks it was $1.60 last year. We live in NW GA.
