Schlort,

You are missing the point.

The most important point.

As the Headline Title of this article states:

PRICE

still an issue….

Basic economic thinking will guide you in the correct direction…

PRICE and Pricing

will determine where

SUPPLY or SUPPLIES exist.

If prices are low,

- supplies will be LOW.

If PRICES are HIGH

- SUPPLIES WILL FOLLOW AND

they will be HIGH AS WELL.

It’s not rocket science,

it’s the

FREE-ENTERPRICE SYSTEM

controlled by

the rich,

the republicans and

their corporations.

Again, it's not rocket science...

IT'S GREED

IT'S GOOD BUSINESS

IT'S THE BOTTOM LINE

IT'S FOR THE MONEY STUPID.

Last weeks wholesale price was about $2.50 a gallon. How does that translate to $4.00 a gallon to the retail buyer? The Retailer sells 400 gallons of propane, has an hours labor in the sale (at most) and makes 600 bucks?

So, if you qualify you can get free propane to heat your house? If you do not qualify, you have to come up with $2,000 to fill your propane tank?

It is not like this is a small inconvienience for people who heat with this type of fuel. Propane was borderline unaffordable for people before the price went up 150% or more. Now, people are forced to chose between heating their homes and eating healthy meals because they can't get free stuff from the government.

If the supply price to the rtailer is back to a normal level, why is it alright for the retailer to charge more still?

Politicians get theiur pockets stuffed with cash while the people pay the price for it. Glad I heat with wood.
