Stock Up On Propane This Summer

Jul 01, 2020

Whether you realize it or not, propane powers a lot of summer fun – from propane-powered grills to campfire stoves. But did you know that summer is also historically a great time to check your propane supply and stock up? With propane’s long shelf life, locking in lower prices during the off-season is smart and convenient.

If you’re a homeowner

If you rely on propane to heat your home in the winter, summer is a great time to fill up your home’s propane tank. A summer fill ensures you’ll have what you need when cold weather and higher demand come, no matter how the markets shift.

If you’re a producer

The propane supply for an operation is a little more complicated than for a residential home. Typically, farmers assess their propane needs later in the season based on their predicted crop yield and drying capacity. But with propane inventories where they are, talk to your local coop about summer saving opportunities and make sure to secure your gallons well in advance of harvest.

A summer fill is a great course of action but be sure to work with your propane dealer to discuss what you’ll need for the rest of the season. This helps dealers work directly with their suppliers to maintain consistency for the rest of the year.

Call a location near you to schedule your next fill.
