THE 2014 PROPANE SHORTAGE IS OVER
GASCO PROPANE IS NOW ACCEPTING NEW CUSTOMERS
Propane supplies are currently more than adequate, and it appears that there will be no further problems with supply this winter. Propane prices have dropped $3.50 -$4.00 a gallon from their late January levels but still remain at historically high levels. We are currently accepting new accounts on a Company wide basis. We are also currently waiving our minimum delivery requirement of 200 gallons in an effort to keep your propane delivery more affordable.
For those of you located in Northern Wisconsin , please be aware that seasonal road postings and weight restrictions will be in place by the middle of March and that most local jurisdictions will not allow propane delivery trucks on their roads from mid-March until the frost is out of the ground. As cold as this winter has been, it could easily be the beginning of May before the restrictions are lifted.
If you're one of our automatic delivery customers we will make every effort to have enough propane in your tank by March 15th to carry you through the weight restriction period.
GASCO HAS ALWAYS HONORED THEIR FIXED PRICE CONTRACTS
We've heard plenty of stories in the last few weeks concerning some of our competitors not honoring their pre-buy and guarantee contracts or adding newly spawned surcharges to contract deliveries. We've been in business since 1937 and have never reneged on a pre-buy or guarantee contract or conveniently contrived some sort of additional "transportation' or "administrative" surcharge on a propane delivery.
It's dishonest, unethical and simply bad business to not honor pre-buy or guarantee price contracts with your customers. If your current propane supplier didn't honor their agreement with you, it's time to find a supplier that you can trust when the going gets tough.
Don't fall for any song and dance about the current shortage being the reason why your contract wasn't honored. It's simply not true. If your contract wasn't honored, it's because your supplier did not anticipate this winter's price increase and subsequently failed to ensure your promised price with his wholesalers. In essence, you're being penalized because your current propane supplier did not adequately manage the risk involved with offering you a fixed price contract.
If you're not one of our current contract customers but would like to be, please contact us. In April when our first 2014-15 winter contracts are issued we can forward one to you. If you happen to be one of our contract customers who took advantage of another Company's new customer incentive contract last summer and were left in the lurch, was it worth the $50 you saved?
Best wishes and think spring!
