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.”

Propane tankHere’s some good news before tax day. Congress just approved a $320 billion two-year budget deal that includes extensions of propane gas credits retroactive through 2017. That means if your home or business used propane through December 31, 2017, you could be eligible for a tax credit.

Keep Your Tank Full

A snowstorm could delay your delivery, so be sure to fill up when you hear one’s headed to town.

Unpredictable weather this season means you may be using more propane than you anticipated.

Luckily, Lakes Gas makes it easy to get the propane you need when you need it with our easy delivery options:

Automatic Delivery

What’s easier than doing nothing? That’s what’s required of you when you use automatic delivery from Lakes Gas. We track your consumption via our computer system using "heating degree days." This term refers to the demand for energy to heat your home daily, determined by the average of the day's high and low temperatures. So, when the system identifies you’re getting low on propane, we'll automatically schedule a delivery to your home. This greatly reduces your chances of running out of propane.
