hmmm My bill with Moulton is cheaper now than in the past.
They are cheaper now than in the past, that is why we wanted to try to stay with them. But when we went in there to do the price cap (not pre-buy) they added on several stipulations that were not on the card that they sent in the mail or mentioned when we called in to inquire about the program. Pennington gas is still cheaper and they have great customer service.(so far)
We would prefer to business in the local area, but the company needs to work with the customer a tad bit.

My father had a big fallout with Moulton. Moulton was charging dad $3 per gallon. Meanwhile,dad's best friend who dad referred to moulton,was only paying $1.46 a gallon at the same time.

I have pennington. Reliable service,but I will check out Thrifty Propane for their propane and propane accessories.. Gotta go for the cheapest price in these times!!!

We filled up our 1000 gal tank from Thrifty in mid-March for $1.519/gal. It is 20 cents cheaper from June through August. You can put 850 gallons into an empty 1000 gal tank. Normally that will last us all winter into the next fall, but the past winter was extra hard. We found we had to fill up again in March. I would strongly urge people to purchase their own used tanks so they can fill up from any supplier they choose. Legally a vender cannot deliver propane to a competitor's tank. That's why you need to own it.

I am past being nauseated-refilled our 500 gal tank-which took approximately 350 gal at a price of $3.25/gal. Started out at the beginning of the winter season $1.99 then up to $2.49-next tank $2.99-this tank $3.25. We have been a customer since they bought out Hancock Oil...a few years ago...but no more...I have had it...done with Moulton gas.
Needless to say-this is the last tank we will be buying from them...the last 1200 dollars they will see from us.
Will be calling tomorrow to find a new company. Have heard good things about Pennington. And thanks to everyone for putting in your comments-has given me a few more companies to check out.
Will also check into purchasing our own tank-and filling it in the summer months...GREAT IDEA !!!

Just hang on until spring run out the the tank and evaluate the situation.Go with the company that can give you an even price for the year NOT THE LOW PRICE.Do not run out your tank and expect the new company to rush in the winter to change tanks it's not going to happin 95% of the time.

What I did was ran my tank out a few winters ago. had Moulton come pick up the old tank. bought my own tank. now whoever the cheapest can fill it. When you own the tank anyone can fill it.

That's the ideal way to go... Just don't run out the tank this week or next. Wait at least till April first! You migth consider getting a new tank installed in mid to late March, then switching over to it when the present tank runs out.

I can't believe there is anyone still with Moulton.
I would not wait until the end of winter and let them rape you for another tank. As soon as this snow melts get on the phone and call someone. Oh and if you have any propane in the tank they will try to charge you a hefty sum to switch this propane over. Throw a big enough fit and they will be glad to get rid of you and just tell the new company to syphon it out. I don't like to be nasty to businesses but if they are trying to rip me off I can get mean.

I have schilling propane and have had good prices for a while. Pennington and Milton are now owned by the same company so there prices are both real high

Are you talking about Milton Propane or Moulton? Do you have contact information for Milton? Is it owned by Inergy now?

It disturbs me to read on here how well Pennington is being recommended. We have been a customer for 4 yrs. In March of this year we got "the letter" from them stating all the new fees they will now charge their customers.

At the head of the letter the very first word is Inergy then it goes on to say DBA Ohio Gas, Silgas, Blue Flame, Mt. Vernon Bottled Gas, "MOULTON" and so on. There was 10 companies all together. You dissatisfied customers that are leaving Moulton for Pennington are jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. What are we people going to do when Inergy owns them all. We heard it's a bunch of lawyers that went together and are buy up these gas companies.

Anyhow, we just bought out own tank but unfortunately we have a lot of gas in Penningtons tank. We are planning to call the attorney general office.

Talked to a guy today who just received a bill for $200 from Pennington because he hasn't been using enough propane in the last yr. He is burning a corn burner. Pennington is pentalizing him for saving energy. He didn't owe them anything prior.

Hadn't heard that one. Their long list of new fees states 50 cents a gallon to pump out.

That would not be astonishing. Some of these companies charge a flat $50 or $100 to pump out unused gas from a tank. They'll refund you the value of the gas at the price you paid, if you keep at them. But they'll take their own sweet time. Get your own tank and shop around for the best price. Don't be tied to a single supplier that gouges you with a long list of annual and seiannual fees for this and that, like not buying enough gas. Inergi and its vassals suck.
