IMPORTANT NOTICE – NEW DELIVERY FEE

Effective April 26, 2022, Blue Rhino will institute a delivery fee for each visit to your store.

This has become necessary after world events have resulted in sharply higher diesel and transportation labor costs, especially during recent weeks. Blue Rhino has been absorbing these increases, which were not included in recent price increases for our program.

As outlined in the chart below, this delivery fee may adjust weekly as average diesel costs change. We hope that these historically high fuel prices will come down and we can eliminate this fee soon. We will review on an ongoing basis and announce any updates on this web page.

We appreciate your partnership in these unique times. We are mindful of the impact of program changes like this, and we will work to ensure our service to you remains the best in the industry so you can continue to profit from selling America’s #1 brand of propane exchange.

If you have any questions, please contact your Blue Rhino Account Manager, or call Blue Rhino Customer Care at 1.800.258.7466. Also, please make sure we have your latest contact information so we can quickly communicate with you.

DELIVERY FEE Q&A

Q. I heard there’s a program change
A. Blue Rhino is instituting a delivery fee for each visit to your store.

Q. Where can I see the charge?
A. This delivery fee will appear on the ticket Blue Rhino drivers leave at your store upon delivery. If you do not typically interact with your driver during delivery, the fee will also appear on any invoice you may receive.

Q. When is this delivery fee effective?
A. April 26, 2022.

Q. Why are you charging a delivery fee now?
A. This delivery fee has become necessary after world events over the past several months have resulted in sharply rising diesel and transportation labor costs, especially during recent weeks. Blue Rhino has been absorbing these increases, which were not included in recent price increases for our program.

Q. You just raised my price, why are you now charging me more money?
A. Price increases that have been instituted recently did not take into account sharply rising diesel fuel and transportation labor costs, both of which have been extremely volatile lately due to recent world events. Diesel and labor costs come into play around the distribution and delivery of Blue Rhino propane tanks to your location(s).

Q. How is this fee calculated?
A. This delivery fee is based on a formula that incorporates the national average of diesel fuel, as reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and costs associated with transportation labor. This fee will adjust weekly as these agencies report updates.

Q. Is this fee permanent?
A. We will review the need for this fee on an ongoing basis and announce any updates on this webpage.

Q. Where can I read more details about the fee?
A. All updates and additional information will be made on this page.
