Moved into our house approximately 8 years ago. Time was limited so I didn't take the extra time to check out propane companies.
I chose to go with the existing company the previous owners had. Big mistake! It was Amerigas! They have charged us $110 annually to lock in at their below market rate.
If we don't take advantage at that "low lock in rate" they charge $30 late fees. If that isn't bad enough, you will pay a higher price after the "lockin" rate if the market value falls below the lock in rate you've already paid $¹10 for.
