On Tuesday April 3rd, we had a retirement party for Dave Johnson from our Mora, MN branch. Dave's pictured on the left with Lakes Gas President, Steve Sargeant. Dave began his career with Lakes Gas in August 1997. We'd like to thank Dave for his many wonderful years of service and wish him much happiness in the next chapter of his life.

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.

Thanks for coming to see Lakes Gas at the 23rd Annual Home and Cabin Show March 2nd through 4th in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. It was held in the IRA Civic Center. We’re glad to meet current and potential propane users and answer all your propane questions. If you missed it, look for us at the show next year!

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.
