Why are Propane Prices Different by city, county and state? Propane prices vary for several reasons. First, some delivery companies just charge more than others because customers don’t always demand or research the current price of propane. The other reasons are based on when the propane is purchased. Many dealer lock in the propane prices in advance and then resell it at that price so they don’t lose money even if the market prices changes. Since we offer propane delivery services in over 35 states we see a wide range of pricing. Each state and municipality may charge taxes and service fees which dealers often pass onto the customer as a higher propane price. The good news is that we work very hard to eliminate dealers that are charging too much in compared to their peers in the states and counties we service.
