Local Propane Pricing Comparison

Do all propane customers in the same area, with similar tank ownership details (lease or own a tank) with the same propane consumption patterns pay the same propane price per gallon?  Furthermore, what if a customer that has been loyal to a propane supplier for many years (perhaps even decades) discovers that a new customer, with similar tank ownership and consumption patterns s paying less than the long time, loyal customer.

Many consumers become upset when they learn about these types of situations. This is a good reason that customers should conduct a local propane price survey (as suggested in other sections of this website) among local propane suppliers before each delivery.  

This type of discovery should be brought to the supplier's attention.  This may result in the supplier making a price concession for the current and future deliveries to reward customer loyalty.
