Q: Why do some propane companies charge fees?

A: Some propane providers draw you in with low prices, then hit you with a list of fees to increase their profits. In contrast, we offer a fair and honest price — with no games or gimmicks.

Q: Is it better to buy or lease a propane tank?

A: If you own your propane tank, you can buy propane from anyone. But unless you want to constantly go through the hassle of switching suppliers, you are better off leasing a tank from a company you trust. When you lease, your propane provider is responsible for tank maintenance and safety; they are trained experts in the safe handling of propane tanks.
