I agree that when something is needed to continue a trip, it may not be important if it is more expensive than usual.

A bigger problem is availability. I have found a couple of times that a station which has propane facilities and is open is not selling propane - the one person on staff who is scheduled to be working and is "trained" to dispense propane isn't in, and so they can't legally sell propane. Of course this is only an issue for bulk sales (not tank exchange) and won't likely happen at specialty propane service businesses.

I'm in Colorado and just paid $5.00 per gallon at a local refill station. I forgot to ask how much it was before getting the fill. Looking online I saw an article about propane costs recently spiking in Colorado and up to $6.00 in some locations, probably the mountains.
