There is part of your issue - Amerigas. A few years back they bought the local company I was dealing with, and immediatly raised the price, and started adding other charges. I made the mistake of buying one tank full without knowing. "Fuel Recovery" fee was just one charge. When I asked what that was she said it was simply to recover their fuel to deliver it. I informed the lady this is likely their last sale, and I would have them pick up the tank after I burn off the remainder in the tank. She promptly informed me they charge not only for pumping out any leftover gas, but to pick up the tank as well (keep in mind this was in fact their tank). I wished her luck in getting that, and left. Since this was spring, I had some time to shop, and purchased my own tank, parked it along side theirs, had a independent gas company put in about 200 gallons, and after I had finished off the remainder I simply moved the line across, lifted their tank with my front loader and placed it along the side of the road, and called them to pick up their tank. I never received a bill, but it took them a while to pick it up. I noticed their facility was full of tanks and one local supplier said that Amerigas was the best thing to happen to them, as their business doubled. I advise price shopping and purchase a tank. Just do not do as I did and buy a tank missing the metal id tag. Took me a while to find someone who was willing to fill it (but I did).

Very old tale. Get rid of the leased tank and buy from the open market. Keeps them honest.

About five years ago LP cost me $3.00 while the wholesale price was $.90. Grr. I built several solar heaters cutting my heating 50% and hot water 90%.

$1.69 here in the mitten. I have a auto fill contract. I never get the cheapest price, but I never seem to get hosed.
