At Valley Propane, we believe that every customer deserves reliable propane deliveries at a fair and transparent price. We offer Automatic Delivery for free to Montana households, so they never need to worry about running out of fuel.
We also believe that paying for your fuel should be as simple and predictable as receiving it. That’s why we offer price protection and payment programs, so you can tailor your home energy budget to your family’s needs.
Propane, like all commodities, experiences price fluctuations based on several factors. Happily, because propane is a primarily American-made energy source, its price is generally lower and more stable than that of gasoline, diesel and many other fuels.
Propane is a co-product of natural gas and crude oil, so propane prices tend to track those commodities. They are also affected by supply and demand. Colder months and extreme weather bring more demand, which can lead to high prices. Additionally, commercial demand for propane — like farms using it to dry crops and the petrochemical industry using it to make consumer products — drives prices up.
Production costs, including transportation and storage, have an impact on propane’s per-gallon price, as well.
As you can see, most factors affecting the price of propane are global and outside our control. However, Valley Propane has ways of stabilizing your payments and saving you money on your fuel.
Your home’s propane usage isn’t the same from month to month, and winter heating bills can be especially painful. Valley Propane has a solution, and it’s totally free.
With a Monthly Budget Plan, you no longer need to pay in full for your propane at delivery. Instead, we will calculate your anticipated annual fuel usage and divide the cost over the year with equal monthly payments. You’ll know how much you’ll pay for propane each month, and your winter bills will be slashed!
Propane prices might change throughout the year, but your bills don’t need to surge when they do. Here are three convenient ways that Valley Propane customers protect their per-gallon rate:
Valley Propane understands that our fuel is necessary to guarantee the comfort and safety of Montanans. We want to help customers, who are worried about falling behind.
For veterans and first responders, we provide an automatic propane discount from the moment they set up delivery services.
If you’re worried about paying your heating bills, we strongly recommend that you reach out to the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which can assist with paying fuel bills and other heat-related issues.
