Propane has a great safety record but, as with any type of fuel, it’s crucial to take all necessary precautions and keep the highest protection standard, without compromise. At Lakes Gas, there’s nothing more important to us than your safety. Read on to learn about our best safety practices and how you can save money by scheduling your gas system safety inspection before fall arrives.
Propane safety is always our top priority. We demonstrate this priority with our commitment to on-time inspections and ongoing maintenance. That’s also why our staff is certified by the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA), in cooperation with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
The most important way to ensure that your propane equipment is running efficiently and safely is to schedule a gas system safety inspection (GSSI). When you become a Lakes Gas customer, we’ll provide you with a GSSI at the time we initially set your tank. The inspection process will take between one to two hours, depending on your type of system. It includes:
Schedule your GFSI by September 30, 2022 for just $69.99. That’s our best price of the year! Enjoy peace of mind and saving. Contact us today!

With so much going on in the world right now, a lot of things are unpredictable. We don’t want your propane costs to fall into that category – and we know you don’t want that, either. That’s why we offer some pricing and payment options that can help you protect your worthwhile investment in propane, and make sure you always know what to expect when it comes to propane costs. Read on to learn more about our Pre-Buy program and how it can help you stretch your fuel dollars.
When propane prices rise, you can save significantly if you’re all set up as a Pre-Buy customer. Lakes Gas has 48 fully-staffed locations in the Upper Midwest and typically, our Pre-Buy Program begins in July, so that’s when you’ll want to be on the lookout for details to sign up. At that time, we can recommend the number of gallons you will need for next heating season, based on your past usage, as well as anticipated weather and other factors.
If you are familiar with Pre-Buy or have utilized it before, you know the best way to enroll is through your online account. This ensures you will get the best price! If you aren’t able to enroll online, and you did Pre-Buy last year, you will receive a new contract in the mail.
If you are new to the Pre-Buy program and want to enroll this year, contact us, and we will mail your contract. You may also be eligible to enroll online. Our energy experts are looking forward to speaking with you and are available to answer any questions you may have.
Q: Do any potential market price drops affect my pre-buy propane purchase?
A: Once you have already contracted for your propane, it’s not possible to give you a lower price, since we have already purchased the fuel for you. Our Pre-Buy program does, however, protect you from any cost increases due to heavier demand during the winter
Q: What if don’t end up using all of the fuel I pre-buy?
A: At the end of the season, any undelivered fuel can be credited to your account.
Q: What happens if I end up needing more fuel than I pre-bought?
A: Once your supply of pre-purchased fuel is used up, any additional fuel deliveries will be charged at the competitive market rate. While our goal is always to be as affordable as possible, this is one reason why it is so important to work with your energy expert to estimate just how much fuel you may need, relying on your past usage data, among other factors.
Q: Can I enroll in the Pre-Buy program online?
A: Yes, we recommend enrolling through our website! Our site is always evolving to become more user-friendly. In fact, recent technical improvements to the My Account section of our website incorporate customer feedback, so that your user experience meets and exceeds your expectations. Of course, you can also contact us directly and one of our energy experts will be happy to walk you through the process.
Our Pre-Buy program is just one way we work to keep your propane affordable for families and businesses like yours. You can purchase your entire supply of propane for the winter all at once and get a locked-in rate that protects you from any increases in propane prices. We’ll recommend the number of gallons you will need for the next heating season, so you can be prepared – no surprises.

This program divides your estimated annual propane costs into 11 equal payment periods, due on the 10th of each month. The propane price represents the current discounted retail market price at the time of delivery.
Although your price is subject to move up or down with the market, we put a cap, or ceiling, on your price at no extra charge. Many of our customers on the Budget Program saved an average of $350 when propane prices rose last year but their price was capped at a lower price. Our Budget Program begins July 1.
