People in Huntington know how to get organized! A person there posted on Front Porch Forum a question about propane prices… the heating fuel choice of many. Well, one thing led to another — research, discussion, wheeling and dealing — and voila! From Linda tonight…
The day I talked to Tina at Suburban she was calling this the Front Porch Forum Group Buy. She had already talked to 24 people from Huntington. This change is going to save us over $200 a month (!) in the Winter season. Shows you the power of communicating with your neighbors. We’re lucky to have FPF as a resource. Thank you to everyone who chimed in and made calls on this subject. If you think you’re paying too much for fuel, you probably are & I recommend the switch.
