The Clean Cities Alternative Fuel Price Report has been released and with it some interesting stats on nationwide fuel prices. Here is an overview of propane vs. gasoline.
Propane National Average per gallon = $2.73
Regular Gasoline National Average per gallon = $3.65
“ Propane prices are lower than gasoline in all regions of the country on a per-gallon basis. Overall, propane was about 92 cents per gallon less than gasoline, with the largest average price differential of $1.16 per gallon found in the Midwest region. Propane prices in this report are from both private fleet refueling stations and public refueling sites that can provide propane for vehicles and for other uses.” ~Clean Cities Alternative Fuel Price Report, July 2013
Did You Know? A gallon of propane has approximately 91,000 BTUs of energy content and a gallon of gasoline has around 125,000 BTUs of energy content. Therefore, in order for a propane gallon to be equivalent in energy content to gasoline it would actually costs the consumer more money. A lower BTU is better, it reduces the overall amount of energy. Furthermore, the savings with propane continues since it is not subjected to federal and/or state taxes, which could adds another 65-98c per gallon to the cost of gasoline.
