Lakes Gas Blog


On March 29th and 30th, we had our annual Managers' meeting. It was a great opportunity for everyone to get together to talk about the upcoming year. On Thursday, we got to watch our Minnesota Wild team beat the Dallas Stars 5-2. We look forward to an exciting year providing great service for all of our customers.

System Tank Image blog sizePropane is a clean, efficient, affordable way to heat your home and power your daily life.

But when it comes to the tank that holds your propane, some people get confused. What’s the better option: renting or buying?

At Lakes Gas, we prefer leasing tanks. We service and repair leased tanks ourselves, so you never have to worry about it. For this reason, we don’t sell tanks to our residential customers.

But if you just moved into a house with its own tank, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. We happily provide propane to customers who own their own tanks. We just don’t service them. So, if you don’t have a tank yet, we highly recommend leasing a tank from us. That way, service and repairs are included in the agreement and not your responsibility. Plus, you always have the peace of mind your propane tank is taken care of.

Propane on the farmEvery time you sit down to a meal, you’re benefitting from the hard work of farmers.

And at Lakes Gas, we help farmers grow the food that fuels you. We help them power farm machinery, dry grain, and heat their barns, water tanks, and homes. And because propane is cost-effective and environmentally friendly, every use is better for their wallets and the planet.

Farm Show Image smallLakes Gas again presented at the 55th Eau Claire Farm Show in Wisconsin March 6th and 7th at the Chippewa Valley Expo Center. The show featured farm-centered products from all over the area.

Lakes Gas Western Wisconsin Sales Representative Jim Gorecki said a snowstorm Tuesday resulted in a smaller-than-usual crowd, but Wednesday had more robust attendance. He estimates about 4 to 5 thousand people attended over the two days. “I only talked to 21 people my first day,” Gorecki said. “But my second day, I talked to over 200.”
