Most winters its $1.40-$1.60/gallon. I only remember it being $2 one winter. I havent filled my tank in 8 years but do keep track of the cost.
My electric is more less the same cost as what I read here. I use about 300-350 KW a month and my bills are around $70, but I use more when its really cold to keep my well thawed with an electric heater. I have a monthly fee around $30 plus a KW charge that I think is 9 cents in the spring/fall/ winter and 10 1/2 cents in the summer.
That's VERY inexpensive propane compared to most of the USA not just the northeast.
