Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means…. it’s BBQ time!!! Unfortunately, my BBQ propane tank needed a refill. Of course, most gas stations and Costcos sell propane, but I couldn’t help but wonder if there was any difference in price. If so, by how much? Here’s my Costco Propane Cylinder Refill review.
Most people would agree that when it comes to gasoline, Costco is usually the best deal in town. Roughly speaking, I find that Costco usually charges about 5% less than the local average gas price. However, unlike gas prices, propane prices aren’t prominently advertised. Therefore, I thought I’d check in to it, so that you don’t have to! 😉 Note: Prices posted below are at MY local gas station and Costco in early May 2020. Your results may vary.
Propane Cylinder Refill Price Example
As you can see in the photo above, my local gas station charges propane at a $1.10/litre. Consequently, a standard 17.8 litre tank(20 lb. tank) total price comes to $19.58.
At Costco, the price for propane was $.56/litre. Therefore, a standard 17.8 litre tank at Costco comes to $9.96. Essentially half price.
As much as I love BBQ’ing I don’t use a lot of propane. I’d say I go through one tank once or twice a year. However, if I’m able to save 50% or about $10 each time, well… I’ll take it! If you own a Camper or Motorhome with large propane tanks, the savings are even greater. 🙂
