Suburban purchased Agway and the prices have been rising ever since. I called December 14 for a current price and was told it was $4.45 a gallon for propane. I called all the other companies in the area and got prices from $3.25-$3.79. That is $1 a gallon more than the lowest company in my area. I went to the government web site Energy Information Administration and found out that the current resident price for propane is $2.36 a gallon. That is more than $2.00 more than the national average. I also looked at the wholesale price for that $4.45 propane and it is $0.73. That is 73 cents for the propane that they wanted to charge me $4.45 for. That is over 600% profit. Is that gouging or not. I have no problem with them making a reasonable profit but that is nothing more than robbery without the gun. I called my local state senator and was told that there prices were not regulated. If we get enough people calling our elected representatives, they will regulate them. If you want to change companies, you have to pay your old company to take out your tanks and pay the new company to put in new tanks. The only alternative is to convert to electric.
