In the wake of this shortage, propane prices have skyrocketed. Indiana’s average propane price jumped more than 40 percent this week, reaching $4.22 per gallon, though many Hoosiers are reporting even higher prices.
The amendment would eliminate the sales tax on any propane bought for more than $2.50 per gallon.
If passed into law, customers would get a credit on their next propane bill to offset the sales tax paid on any charge over $2.50 per gallon.
For example, a homeowner with a 500 gallon propane tank paying the state average of $4.22 per gallon would save about $60 on their bill.
This credit would be retroactive to Jan. 1 and would be effective through March.
