It's the war on fossil fuels, cut production, drive the prices up! The idea is to make fossil fuels so expensive you will turn down the thermostat, drive less or do without!
Everything is moved by these fossil fuels, prices on all products goes up, leaving you with less money available for these fossil fuels; gasoline, fuel oil and propane!

 It’s not just fossil fuels prices that are rising it’s goods in general , it’s the old trickle down affect, they just pass the cost down line

Amen. Haven't watched ANY of the so-called "news' channels in I don't know how long. If I feel the need to get "caught up on things" I usually go to Reuters, Pew Research, WSG, NPR/PBS, BBC...and there's more. They are unbiased and factually based MOST of the time. Allows me to do my own thinking and research without having an opinion rammed down my throat. Sorry...bit off topic.

The increase will hit natural gas as well, and most people use a lot more of that than propane. They are warning people to budget for heating costs 50% above last year. I am paying almost $4 for gasoline, and that will impact my fishing. I drive 75 miles to the lake, pulling a trailer. Energy will be a lot more expensive in the future, and almost everything uses energy to manufacture and transport.  >:(

What a joke its a ice fishing forum and your complaining about the cost of propane will cut down on your chances of fishing because the cost of fuel!  Just be happy you can go fishing.  America is the land of complainers and entitled.  Quit complaining and enjoy what so many have died for!

In the "olden" days of ice fishing, we either dressed warmer, or waited for a warmer day or a sunny one without wind. Didn't have any heaters or shacks, either. At least me and my buddies didn't.
This is me before I had a shack or heater, so many clothes on I couldn't fit in the chair. Back of pic says -10* WC, caught nice r'bows". But...having a porty, little stove,  and heater is now pretty nice.... :roflmao:
It's whatever works for ya. Get out and fish.

I agree this is the land of “complainers and entitled”, just watch the news sometime, but voicing a legitimate concern does not qualify for placement in the aforementioned category!
If you feel the need to lash out at someone, and you think this Forum is a joke, perhaps it would be better for you to find another venue.

Reb, we had a set of those exact same lawn chairs when I was a kid  ;D

We fished open ice when the weather was warm, or out of the car doors with the car heat blasting when it was cold, before we got our first portable fish house.

I switched to alcohol for my fishing heat a few years ago, but even that was short last winter, so I stocked up over the summer this year in case it is hard to find again. Now I just hope we get enough ice to justify buying 5 gallons of alcohol  :roflmao:

As far as the natural gas prices, can't do much about that other than grin, bear it, and turn the thermostat down a bit and wear a sweater 🤷‍♂️

I actually don't drink booze, developed a pretty bad allergy to it a long time ago.

I use 91% isopropyl. It's cheap, and doesn't give off any nasty fumes.

I be danged!!!! Me too, seriously. Bad itchies all over... >:(

Whoops, back to the thread!!!!!! I did pick up some six 1 lber's a bit ago, for the Buddy heater. Likewise on the 20lb tanks. I knew propane was gonna jack up.  Pretty much set.

UPDATE: Just checked Walmart...the Coleman 2 pk is $17.....holy bejesus gawd!!!!! That's a 215% increase from the usual $6.29 I paid that's on the last one.... :%$#!:

Just hit some stores here...the 1 lb'ers were all around $16-18 for TWO. Insane. Menards included....EXCEPT for Home Depot, theirs are $9.50 for two. Grabbed two 2 pks. Same price online for them at Home Dept...so if ya need some 1lb'ers, better run, don't walk to Home Depot. They be hikin' up soon, too.

I'm thinking if anyone has property with old trees on it, they might make a fortune this year selling firewood.
Sure hope things don't come to that. We've all been thru enough already.   :-\

Better up that price a bit Doc, he's making money off of you, is all he's doing. It's going for 150-300 face cord here already....just checked 5 or 6 places a bit ago.   :wacko:
