Now is the time to talk to your propane marketer about options to lock in lower fuel costs and schedule refuels this irrigation season for maximum savings and convenience.

Like other energy sources, such as natural gas and electricity, the price of propane is market-driven and fluctuates throughout the year as demand changes. Cooler weather typically means higher demand for propane and thus, higher prices. So now is the perfect time to lock in those lower summer prices and schedule a refuel to maximize savings.

In addition to filling propane tanks early while fuel costs are lowest, another way to reap the most savings is to prepare now for fall and winter demands by planning ahead for supply needs. On-farm storage is an excellent way to take advantage of optimal savings and convenience, especially for producers who dry grain at their farm. Make arrangements now to secure low fuel costs and fill those tanks early for savings throughout the year.
