    You pay for wood to burn?
    That has got to suck.

    Damn...I don't even pay half that in the peak of summer running two A/C units!

    Are you all electric and did you have your thermostat cranked to 75?

    Back when we used propane we would always fill our 500 gal tank in the early fall while price was still low and could make it for a year til we had to fill again.

    When I was living in Grady Co. I'd pay just over $1 a gallon in Aug. every year for 17 years. If I rean out in Jan. it would be $3. So I never ran out.

    I heat with wood but tore up both my shoulders in late 2019. surgery for the 1st one in January, surgery for the other one in June and then again in October, didn't get to cut much wood last year. Sometimes a person has to buy wood.
    On the bright side my electric bill for the period covered by the ice age was only $14 higher than normal.

    We don't have a large home, and only have one Dearborn heater (the cook stove and water heater are electric). Our 150 gallon propane tank works ok for us.

    It had 50-60% left from last winter.
