If you’ve been around a bit, liked us on facebook or followed us on twitter, you will have noticed a common thread among our posts, commercials, and website updates. Our business is built on a true, grassroots, Alaskan effort focused on quality, service and fair propane pricing. Providing quality fair propane pricing includes educating our customers on exactly why working with The Propane Guys is the best choice for residential propane. You can save money and we won’t even require a propane delivery contract!

Fair Propane Pricing

Some wonder how our service can make a profit based on our low costs of only $30.00 per tank ( 1 propane tank ) or $25.00 per tank ( 2 or more propane tanks). The math is quite simple. Your standard box (retail) store, where propane exchange tanks are available, have a number of ways to cut their costs. 1st is a well known tactic of under-filling propane tanks. They don’t hide the fact that they are only providing 15lbs worth of propane in every 20lb propane tank. Their unit pricing discloses this with simple math.

If you take a look at the image below you will see the box (retail) chain store selling their tank for $25.99. Looking closer you will also see that the “unit price” is $1.73 per pound. $25.99 / 15lbs = $1.73 per pound.¬† Most consumers don’t realize they are only receiving 15lbs of propane per tank. The Propane Guys however, offer 20% more propane in each tank, AND we deliver it right to your home! Take a look at the figure below:



1 Tank : 15lb worth of Propane
$25.99 -or- $1.73 per pound
2 Tanks : 30lb worth of Propane
$51.98 -or- $1.73 per pound

Time, Travel and Gas (1 hour ): $15.00
