The price seems low enough but last year that I remember when it was more
beneficial to have signed a fixed price contract was 2009 (for 2009/2010 propane
delivery). Since then, here in PA propane prices have been falling, following
the general nat. gas trend, and it was always better to just go with the market
price because it was always less. Last year it was almost $0.50/gal less than
the fixed they advertised for that season. Last year my gas company did not even
send an invite to sign a fixed price contract.
My oil supplier used to screw me like this making me pay extra to
guarantee price but it was well above any market price ever reached.
No gas lines where I live and have oil delivered and it runs nearly $4/gal.
LPG prices are very region specific, so hearing that my last fill was $1.75/gal
isn't going to help you much. You can look at the US Gov propane page, but they
don't track prices during the summer.
