Are propane prices expected to rise in 2023?
According to experts’ forecasts, propane prices will rise in 2023, although not reaching levels seen in 2022. In fact, you could see propane costs reaching as high as $2.80 to $5.25 per gallon depending on the size of the tank you have. At this time, it there are several factors contributing to the price hikes including geo-political issues and restricted inventory, however the economy is changing and pricing may stay relatively stable this year.
Should I lock in propane prices?
Locking in your propane sometimes makes sense during times of uncertainty. However over the last 6 months prices have dropped significantly and you would have been wound up paying substantially more than current market value. I suggest going with variable pricing as whenever you lock in the company packs the number to allow to cover for unexpected rises, therefore you’re tend to pay higher than staying on a variable plan. Choosing the right company is key here as some aren’t really basing your variable price on current market costs.
Is it worth switching from electric to propane?
With propane being more cost-efficient, switching to it from electric will save you money, and quite a bit. Along with lower costs to fuel your appliances, the appliances themselves are more efficient and typically lasting longer than their counterpart. Also during cold snaps current electric heating units may not keep up with your house heating demand.
