The propane truck came today, refilling our propane tank. In the winter when we're heating the house they come about every 5 or 6 weeks. We don't need it at all in the summer, as everything else is electric.
Natural gas lines don't come down our road, and probably won't any time soon. They'd have to get enough people willing to pay for it, and these aren't prosperous times. Natural gas is much cheaper than propane, but that initial hook up is a killer, especially when most customers have a lot of road frontage, and are at least 500 feet from the road. Nikita is the only one happy about it - the propane driver keeps dog treats in the back of his truck.
