What is the best month to buy propane?
Believe it or not, Fall starts this week – and despite the unseasonably warm temperatures we’ve seen in the Hudson Valley in recent weeks, there’s no denying that crisp days and nights will be on the menu in the not too distant future.
Demand is low – Demand drives up propane prices – and that demand is highest when temperatures plummet. Propane prices can also spike in the summer months, when people jump in their campers and RVs for summer vacation and camping. Early fall is a “shoulder” season between these periods of peak demand – meaning it’s often the best time to save money on your propane tank refills.
Weather is more stable – Sudden cold snaps are common during late autumn and early winter, but they happen less often in the early fall.
It helps you stay prepared – Extreme cold can create propane shortages quickly, leading to no-heat emergencies as people scramble to fill their tanks. The cold can also lead to power outages – which is when you need propane to keep your family safe and warm. Schedule your propane tank refill in the early fall and you’ll enjoy the peace of mind knowing that your family will be safe in any weather.
You will enjoy all the comforts of home – Whether you fire up the propane grill for a game, start up your propane fireplace for a cozy evening at home, or turn up the propane spa for a cold night soak, you’ll be relying on propane to deliver home comfort throughout heating season. Fill your propane tank now and you will be sure to keep that comfort coming for months to come.
