How do you want to buy?
Lakes Gas gives you options. You can save money over time with our budget program, pay in installments, or lock in a low rate.
Here's some more information on our buying programs:
With the budget program, you will get a discounted market price that will vary for each delivery. A price cap will ensure your price will not exceed a certain amount.
Don't want to worry about a monthly bill? You can pre-pay for all the propane you'll need for the term of your contract. This comes with two options.
This program is great for those who don't want a monthly bill but also don't want to pay the entire cost of their propane up-front. With installment buying, you'll pay 50 percent of the cost up-front, 25 percent 30 days into the program and 25 percent 60 days into the program.
- Locked Pricing
In this plan, you get a locked-in rate, which you pay in full 30 days after delivery of your first gallons.

Building a new home?
Our friends at the Propane Education and Research Council have some great tips on how to use propane to save energy in your new home right from the start. They call it the Propane Energy Pod, and it's a combination of five applications of propane appliances that save energy and reduce greenhouse emissions.
Here are some ways you can put the pod to work for you:
Propane furnaces, space heaters, and boilers can reduce energy costs up to 68 percent, while maintaining comfort.
Propane water heaters can drastically slash the costs of heating water. Tankless versions can save a homeowner up to $150 a year.
In addition to reduced energy consumption, propane ranges, cooktops and ovens also allow for more precise control of heat levels.
Not only do propane dryers work more quickly than electric dryers, they're also 20 percent cheaper to run. Talk about a win-win!
Propane fireplaces have up to 6 times the heating capacity of electric fireplaces, and don't pull hot air from the rest of the house, like wood-burning units do. Plus, they cost as little as $50 a year to operate.
