I agree about the exorbitant cost of the exchange tanks pricing....
But you are paying for the convenience. Since the OP has no transportation,
possibly being able to walk to a local curb market might make it worth the while.

Most people use the propane exchange here also. Bring your empty and exchange for a full for around 15-20 bucks.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

I don't mind paying a little extra for the convenience factor, especially after regular business hours, while on my way home from work, for instance....

Check to see if that is the price with exchanging/ them taking your empty tank...
All things considered $35 delivered to your door is not that bad...A little pricey maybe, but a Taxi to and fro, etc, etc. adds up.

We live in apartment, in a building. We don't have a natural gas line that we can run out to the porch; I have a coworker who has that and it's very nice ! We all have electric dryers as we aren't zoned for gas, either.

I asked around, one friend said she went already, another couple said it was too far for them to drive.

We're actually pretty happy with this exchange service; for the fee they come at a specific time. I know it cost more than doing it myself, but I do think I save on the transportation, at least.

Thanks all, for your input !
