Have you been wondering about the price of propane in NY? It’s always hard to predict which direction current propane prices will go next, because there are many factors that cause energy prices to rise and fall. Unforeseen events like severe weather and global politics can affect energy production, and therefore influence propane prices per gallon in NY.
Destructive hurricanes can temporarily shut down major refineries, and international crises can have an effect on crude oil production. Although events like these may not actually lead to fuel shortages, prices around the country—including the prices of gasoline, diesel fuel, propane and heating oil—can all rise based on speculation in the stock market about what could happen in the coming weeks and months. This is often referred to as the fear factor.
Beyond this, we have seen propane gas prices on the rise in the last few years for a solid reason: It’s largely due to record amounts of propane being exported, which has put a crimp in inventories back home.
On a local level, seasonal demand, operational costs (including overtime) and even competition between dealers can result in price variation and affect the cost of propane.
This is beyond our control, but, if you’re a Bottini Fuel customer, you can always count on a fair rate from us. At Bottini Fuel, we’re transparent about our pricing. Our prices consistently remain below the statewide average. Note: Average rates are based on survey data collected by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
That’s why we can promise you Guaranteed Fair Pricing. We are the only heating fuel company in the Hudson Valley who makes this type of pricing guarantee!
Beside our Guaranteed Fair Pricing, we have ways of helping you control your heating costs by improving the efficiency of your equipment. And if you’re interested in adding propane equipment to your home, we can help you there too. The installation work takes about a day. Bottini’s propane professionals make the job seamless, and all our work is backed up by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Propane generates many more Btu’s than an equivalent amount of electricity, so you need much less propane to produce the same amount of heat or energy. Also, propane appliances are extremely efficient so they waste very little fuel in the combustion process.
Besides making your home more energy-efficient, another way to control your costs is to enroll in a price protection program for the next heating season.
Another popular option for our customers is EZ Pay, our monthly payment program. By spreading out your fuel payments, your heating costs will always be manageable and predictable. You’ll have one set payment each month—and there is no cost to enroll.
Thousands of Bottini Fuel customers have already enrolled in this program. You don’t use more propane. You don’t pay more per gallon. You only pay for the fuel you receive, and there is no finance charge. If your actual fuel costs are a little higher or lower than we estimated, we will make adjustments as necessary during the course of the winter. Plus, if you have a service plan, we can spread that cost into EZ Pay.
Feel free to contact us and we will be glad to discuss which payment or pricing options may work best for you.
