This year's mild winter has made the demand for propane gas go down, and the price along with it.

Tony Marchand, CEO of Gold Star FS, Inc., said this time last year, propane gas prices were around five to six dollars a gallon. Now, consumers are paying about $1.50 a gallon.

"It's been a nice holiday blessing for customers this year," Marchand said. "It's a lot cheaper than last year."

Marchand said he expects to see those prices stay the same through winter.

It's something that Don Dobbles said he welcomed this year.

"I think I [locked] in at $1.70 this year," Dobbles said.

Marchand said they usually fill their customers' tanks up about three to four times a year.
