lease or buy propane tank

I a moving to Milton in September. I have never had a propane tank before for my house. Should I lease, or buy the propane tank?

Any opinions?

In west of Frederick and got Amerigas. They use to have a “use more that xxx of gas in a year pay no tank rental” otherwise I pay $70/year rental. They just told me they changed the plan to I pay reguardless. I figure I’ve paid near $1K in rental for that tank. But they are responsible for the tank and regulator. If I move they just pick it up. So I’d say it depends on how much use you’d get, size. If you do purchase one don’t skimp on condition.

How big? I have an underground tank I purchased when I built the house. Can change suppliers any time I like.

Forgot to mention that point! Your right, use whomever you want as supplier. Make sure you get a big enough tank incase you want to install a generator in the future.

This...
We've always encouraged our clients to buy their own tank and call around for current pricing every time you need fuel. Otherwise, they'll creep up on you and you'll end up paying too much.

I'd say buy, but make sure you call for fillups long before it runs out.

We lease and the price creeps up. I'll be buying one soon.

They want to put in 100 gallon tank (fireplace, stove, water heater). I want to go to 300 gallon for possible other uses in the future.
