Lock In Winter Propane Prices Now

Michiganders who rely on propane to heat their homes in the winter are being encouraged to start shopping around now for the best prices.

The Michigan Public Service Commission says if prices can be locked in months ahead time, people can save significant amounts of money as opposed to waiting until demand spikes when cold weather arrives. An estimated 320-thousand homes in the state use propane as their primary heating source, and Michigan leads the nation in total residential propane consumption.
