Chehalis Propane Supply FAQs
Can Extreme Weather in Chehalis Affect my Propane Tank?
Technically propane freezes at -306.4 degrees Fahrenheit (or -188 degrees Celsius), so your propane freezing in a Lewis county winter is not a problem. But what is more likely to happen is that your propane can no longer vaporize. When the temperature gets below -44 degrees Fahrenheit (-42 degrees Celsius) the propane will no longer ‘boil’. Seeing as the average winter weather conditions recorded in Chehalis, Washington rarely goes below 24 degrees Fahrenheit, you likely won’t have this issue. But if you do, you can fix it by getting a propane tank heater.
In hot weather conditions, again it’s pressure that can be a problem or cause fill gauges to give incorrect readings. When planning your propane installation, you should not position your propane in direct sunlight as the hotter the tank gets, the more pressure there will be inside the tank.
Why Do My Oil Prices Change in Lewis County?
Oil prices fluctuate for a variety of reasons. These include:
- Commodities Trading – Heating oil is traded on the commodities market just like other home heating fuels. This means heating oil cost is subject to fluctuations, just like the stock market. The price of crude oil has the biggest impact on the price of wholesale heating oil. Due to the variations in crude oil prices, dealers are generally price takers on any given day. Heating oil like any energy product responds to supply and demand fundamentals, such as cold or warm weather or supply issues in foreign countries.
- Changes in the cost of crude oil – Crude oil is a major price component of heating oil, and changes in the price of crude oil affect the price of heating oil.
- Regional operating costs – Prices also are impacted by higher costs of transporting the product to remote locations. In addition, the cost of doing business by dealers can vary substantially depending on the area of the country in which the dealer is located. Costs of doing business include wages and salaries, benefits, equipment, lease/rent, insurance, overhead, and state and local fees.
