100 “gallon” propane tank?

Roughly how much a year does it cost to have a 100 gallon /424 pound propane tank total (tank, delivery fee, and filling)? I currently have Ameriagas as my supplier. They are coming up to install it and I just like to have enough set aside to cover the bill every year.
Thanks

I pay a yearly $75 dollar rental fee. I don't recall what I paid for getting it refilled. It was probably under $300

I bought my own tanks. They're about $129 new at Lowes so 2 years it's paid for. I got mine off of Craigslist, cheaper yet. I take my own to get filled. It is sooooo much cheaper that way. I think it was about $55 for my last fill up.

I have two 100 Gallon propane tanks to run my gas log stove and my whole house generator. I can't tell you the annual cost because it varies monthly depending on the weather, but it is about 2 hundred dollars or so when they come out and top the tanks off several times a winter. To get an idea what you will spend you will have to have an idea of what you will burn. I did not pay for the tanks, they belong to the gas provider.

I get mine from countryside propane filled 2 weeks ago at 1.29 a gallon. I own my tank. 4.85 is insane! Iíve only had propane for 3 years now. Cheapest from them was 3 years ago at .91 a gallon most was 1.52.

500 gallon tank for me. $10 per year rental if I use 100gal per year. Usually burn 150ish
I have suburban. Only game in town and they rape us every year, last year was $4.85 gallon. It sucks but there really is no other option. Called to complain but with no other option (Amerigas farther away an about same price when said and done) they basically said too bad

I canít say for sure, but Iíd say the $129 tank is a 100 lb tank, not a hundred gallon. Rural King has them for about the same price...they are 100# tanks.

Yep.

As far as fill up I know Tractor Supply is somewhere around $3 per gallon if you take a tank there to get filled.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
