Propane is (of course) a commodity, and pricing fluctuates based on supply and demand. If you've ever wondered what a fair price is for propane, I'd suggest starting here: https://www.eia.gov/petroleum/heatingoilpropane/ The US Energy Information Administration posts a weekly report of wholesale and retail pricing for propane, by region. I've found that the US Average, plus 0.20 - 0.30/gal, is a fair indicator of what you should pay for home delivery of a few hundred gallons. The most I've paid per gallon in the past three years is $2.69, and that's at the peak in Jan/Feb from one of the "big two": Ferrellgas or AmeriGas. Smaller or independent providers are usually willing to be a bit more aggressive on price, and you can often negotiate down below $2 as a first-time customer with any provider. And don't pay any additional service fees or delivery charges - it's all-in at that price/gallon. I can highly recommend Pacific Coast Propane. A few years ago we had a propane leak inside the house; they came out after-hours, diagnosed the issue, and saved us (literally)!
