Another reason to be thankful for coal.

Another reason to be thankful for coal.

I thought it was interesting last week when I stopped at a new local medical/industrial gas and residential propane supplier. After inquiring about oxygen and shielding gas, I asked what the current price of propane was, adding that I owned my tank. He did not know the current price, but was quick to inform me, complete with attitude, that I would not be a priority if I owned the tank. I am not commenting on their delivery policy as much as letting those of you out there using propane who own your tanks know that you may be a lower priority for delivery. Not that anyone needs more reasons to switch from propane to coal.

It is certainly a good thing for one to be able to purchase their projected fuel supply for the winter and then some if desired. I like that. My coal supplier
( Heet Inc.) is very appreciative of my business and could not be a better to deal with. The bonus is that I am much more comfortable for less money.
