Howdy - hoping I can get some referrals on a fair and professional propane service for my home. I have been with Amerigas for 13 years, and after billing issues every year with them, they are now requiring residential customers to sign a 3 year agreement if they want continued service. The "agreement" is pretty much one sided to their advantage and allows them to charge you what they deem a "competitive rate" and you really have no recourse if you disagree. I called a customer service rep and they said their current rate is $3.84 per gallon which seems very high, and of course, there is no guarantee as to how much they might jack it up in the future. Any recoomendations on companies I should talk to as an alternative would be appreciated. TIA!

Highly recommend Texas Propane. Good family owned business and we've had them for years after a bad experience with Suburban Propane.

We've had good luck with StarTex. Fair prices, fast and good service.

Thanks - there are a number of people in our neighborhood that use Star Tex and are apparently happy with them. Appreciate your input!

You're going to get a lot of recommendations for StarTex on here. Consider me another recommendation.

Thank all for the help with this! Interesting that no one has come back with a recommendation for Amerigas. Must not be many happy customers.

We recently dropped Ameri-gas (continual overcharging) for J&B. J&B is extremely responsive and when you need to contact them, your not dealing with some rep in Ohio

We have used J&B since we built our house. I cannot give them a high enough recommendation. They delivered 150 gallons yesterday at $2.90/gal.

We've used Suburban Propane, but I'm neutral on whether I'd refer them. They seem mildly pricey, but I haven't priced shopped like I should so I'm not sure about that.

Texas Propane and Startex have been popular choices on texags for a while

Albert retired, but the new guy for Star Tex is really good. I use them at home and my shop and highly recommend them. $2.70/gallon last week. Amerigas is the absolute worst.

Crap, I only had Albert's cell number. I assume you just called the office?

I called Albert's cell number and they answered in the office, so they either have his phone or at least his number. They also said gas prices have gone up 4 times in the past month and expect it to go higher so fill your tank sooner rather than later.

Which Star Tex office do you call?

Another vote for StarTex. Michael has been filling my propane for several years after dropping Sharp. Always quick to respond and StarTex has some of the best prices. Their main line 1-800-792-3487 will get you setup. I believe that office is out of Waco.

Already up to $2.79. Don't blame them at all though; the market is what it is. For retrospect I filled up for $1.99 about 8 months ago - you do the math.

Do they have just propane or do they also have propane accessories?

Truthfully, it could have been $2.79

I didn't have the bill with me.

Oh dang. You're right. I was looking for the picture.

Well done aggieboy!

As for me, I'll start my self imposed 48 hour ban from this board immediately.

This is about the time of year I get my propane tank filled before the winter price hike. Anyone have an idea as to the price per gallon this year?

My provider got bought by Ferrell Gas. Not a big fan, but we're leasing the tank. We're stuck I think.

A lot more than you expect.

They've been hiking prices once a month or more, not for the fall only.

We have used StarTex before. They do a good job and they're the cheapest. We're on Texas Propane now and we have been pleased. Stay away from Sharp.
