You on the first responder rate for propane?

Probably. I never specifically asked for any special rate or anything, but I get it from the same company that services our stations, which is a smallish local outfit.

We ended up with the first responder rate years ago with suburban propane. Get it delivered for .10 cents Over wholesale which is a huge savings.

Regular is around 3.20/gal, diesel around 3.50/gal, and since it was mentioned, I paid 1.99/gal for my propane delivery earlier this week.

That's a really good rate for propane. A tanker load delivered to me today would be 1.60ish.

Paid $3.19 today. Sucks but is what it is, I fill it up anyway cause I don’t have a choice.

Those prices do effect my wheeling trips though. Filling up my truck at 7mpg with these prices brings the suck for real.

I think that's women in general, not just your wife. I've been thinking about hanging around in Target...women are already in there getting lots of stuff they don't need anyway. I'm sure at least one or two of them would take me home!

Got one 5 miles from my house and then their largest store is in New Bern. Somewhere around 100,000 square feet!

Ingles has gone up 10 cents per gallon since Thursday evening. It's 3.25 and diesel has jumped 14 cents to 3.69. The shell station a quarter of a mile away is 3.35 and 3.74. I think the plan is to have a chip shortage for a few more years and fuel at insane price levels so it'll be easier to bring in the electric mobile.

I read that oil could go as high as $150/barrel.

Me too. $5 gasoline and $6 diesel would suck big ole balls.

Forgot to say that fuel in Galax is about a dime cheaper than here.

It would normalize the price of trucks and campers though!

People love their home value going up. Or how much extra their old car is worth. But hate when normal things increase in price.

I typically prefer higher fuel prices BECAUSE it normalizes/lowers prices on my hobbies. But I heard a theory that this go round, prices are SO high on trucks and campers, it makes more financial sense to power through the added expense, rather than sell a truck you bought at $80k for $40k. You can no longer justify being upside down $10k for the gas savings, you won’t cover the gap with todays prices. And with campers, outside of monthly payments…it can sit in the driveway until you can break even in 5 years.

Took $573.04 to fill my truck up this morning, diesel was $3.77 a gallon, this really hurts small businesses when you are a delivery service, we have 4 trucks and running a night shift also, so that’s at least one fill up per day per truck
