How do you find the lowest propane prices? You will need to shop and compare prices to find the best value. Each week the Energy Information Agency conducts a weekly survey from October to March to determine the average price for propane gas. See the chart below to find Ohio propane prices.
These prices reflect what the dealer is paying for them from their supplier. Your charge will naturally be higher due to other fees the dealer was added. Some fees will be transportation, delivery, surcharges if any, and of course their profit.
Be sure when you compare propane prices from dealer to dealer, you receive the total amount of charges that you will be charged. This way you can have an accurate way to compare the total price and not just the per gallon charge.

Ohio Propane Gas Shortages Continue
How are you doing heating with LP gas this winter? Odds are you are struggling to pay for your heat and that’s only after you have been able to secure a delivery to keep you warm.
Prices per gallon have jumped over $1 per gallon since the end of 2013. This has crippled many household budgets. This colder weather has forced Buckeyes to use more heat than they typically use, and at a higher cost now too!
This years’ shortage has occurred because of high demand by farmers to help dry their corn crops this year. With these frigid temperatures causing household to use more propane, shortages have developed. There are cases of users not getting the propane they have contracted for and are now complaining to the governor’s office to step in and help.
Governor Kasich signed a state of emergency last month that will allow propane delivery drivers to work longer hours to help transport more propane to Ohio to help alleviate the tight supplies.
