Somehow, it seems amazing to me that Graham Gas didn't make arrangements with other area propane dealers, (all of which had gas to deliver) to step in and at least provide partial tank fills to get their clients through the deep freeze. I guess keeping all the profits to themselves was more important then servicing their clients. Unlike natural gas, most propane customers have a choice of suppliers. I suspect many will choose to change soon.

Gas shortage? Sure there is...just a ploy to raise the price! While people suffer, the gas companies are only thinking about dollars!!

I recently purchased an energy efficient range for cooking, no pilot lights and hoped to save some money, this not so,, the propane gas company which is suburban propane states that I do not use the minimum amount require so they charge me more that the regular price about 2x's more and also a special tank storage charge of $80.00 a year This is not fair to buy a energy efficient appliance almost pay double for gas and tank charge being green and saving money. AVOID SUBURBAN PROPANE,,,,
is my advice,,, I am now gone... we will see if other companies do this
