A note about propane delivery fees
When we—or any fuel company—make a delivery, there are obviously fixed costs involved that must be covered. In situations where the delivery is large enough, such as heating or backup systems, these costs are covered in the normal mark-up of the propane. In locations where smaller tanks are used, such as fireplace logs, clothes dryers, cook stoves, etc., the volume of propane delivered cannot cover these expenses at the normal markup.
Most companies cover this additional cost by charging a higher price per gallon based on how the propane is used. Customers of these companies who have smaller tanks are charged as much as three times the price per gallon than that of users who have larger tanks, such as for home heating!
The problem we see with this is that a customer that has, for example, 80 gallons delivered, is paying a fixed cost plus the fixed cost of the next customer who might be getting only 10 gallons delivered. The first customer is paying a penalty for using more propane, which is completely opposite from the way it should be. We feel the fairest way to cover our fixed costs for smaller deliveries is to be up front and open by charging a delivery fee for smaller tanks, and charge the normal price per gallon for the actual propane delivered.
