Propane tank prices and fill rates

Generally I've found propane tank prices all over the place between my searching. However, I did find that Ferrell Gas has pretty good prices on tanks. I stopped at the location near 410/Houston street a couple weeks ago and ordered two 8 gallon aluminum tanks at $155 apiece. They had used steel tanks for $75-85. The guy also told me they would do an "exchange" program and come to your house to fill tanks if I opened a commercial/home use account. FYI they may have good prices on the tanks but they are $9.50 MORE expensive to full an 8 gallon than my local place in the country. FG wants $29.50 to fill whereas it is $20 at Smith propane in La Vernia.

Anyway I thought y'all might benefit from this info, which is why I passed it along.

I Paid 3.79 in Amarillo.
In Oklahoma it was 2.79!

Go to a Uhaul and they just charge you what is put in the tank not a flat rate. You could still have propane in it and then you are getting ripped off.

The local Ferrell charges $20-$24 to fill an 8 gallon tank. His new aluminum tanks are $175 a piece.
