SWEET VICTORY ! Just had a propane delivery - first one since November 4th, 2008. The scoundrels topped off my tank then to squeeze another hit at $ 2.869. Todays price was $ 2.619 - but only 50.6 gallons! That includes stove/oven, holiday cooking and boiler use when the Vigi can't handle the single digit nights effectively. I have an 1800 sq ft Colonial, using a Vigilante II coal stove, and just burned my last bag of the first ton for the season. Fired the stove up November 22nd.
Would have used at least 400 gal of propane by now, figuring average of $ 2.70 gal. , I have saved $ 730 so far! Thank you to the coal miners.
