Commercial properties need a reliable fuel source for heat, cooking, laundry and other essential functions. Many business owners choose propane as their facility’s energy source because it is efficient, nontoxic and reliable. While propane is also generally affordable, the price you pay for it may vary.

At Shipley Energy, we see the vital role propane plays in so many businesses’ success. Our experts want to ensure you can accurately budget for your propane expenses and understand why you pay the amount you do.

How Much Does Commercial Propane Cost?

Propane’s cost depends on its production, transportation, and usage. Your commercial propane bill will rise and fall with:

  • Supply and demand: Suppliers can only produce so much propane. When demand exceeds the amount available, prices will increase. Conversely, propane costs tend to drop in warmer months when demand lessens.
  • Crude oil and natural gas prices: Propane comes from other commodities, such as raw natural gas and petroleum. Geopolitics, storage inventory levels, and exports can often impact crude oil and natural gas markets, therefore impacting the price of propane.
  • Transportation and delivery prices: Suppliers set their own transportation fees, which include travel and the cost of storing the propane.
  • Weather conditions: The propane market is subject to the world around us. A snowstorm can inhibit a supplier’s ability to procure and transport propane in the winter when demand is at its highest, raising prices.
