For LAPOA members who have propane piped to their homes (or have a tank because the pipe does not go down their street), Amerigas has set the price of propane at $1.559 through July 31, 2018. This will be a fixed price for the entire year and will not fluctuate with the market. There will be no lock in fees for the fixed rate. In addition, the meter fee will remain unchanged at $1.00/month. See: Lake Arrowhead Propane lock in letter August 2017 Note: If you have a tank and have been charged a fee for propane delivery contact Amerigas for a credit. Amerigas Gaylord: 989-732-5656.
(Of course the Spot Price does not include transportation costs from the source to the local market, and you have to buy 42,000 gallons at one time!)
