5 things every propane user should know

Propane has been a fuel source for Americans for more than a century now. Its portability and flexibility make it a fixture of homes across the country. It fuels indoor comfort and outdoor fun without ever taking a single day off.

1. Your propane tank should never be "full"

A propane tank is considered full when it is filled to the 80% mark. Propane is stored in tanks under pressure in a liquid state, and that pressure can build when it’s hot outside. The additional space within the tank allows for propane to safely expand into a vapor during the warmest times of year.

2. Be prepared for propane prices to fluctuate

You’ve likely seen how prices can fluctuate from day-to-day at your favorite gas station. Similar to traditional gasoline, wholesale propane prices are traded on the commodities market and can fluctuate daily. That means there can be better times to buy propane than others. For example, prices are typically lower in the warmer months and higher in the winter months based on demand. At Ferrellgas, you can easily get an online quote today.
