Attendance at the New York Propane Gas Association Fall Conference at the Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua, N.Y., reached 100, the biggest in recent years, as weather cooperated to the extent that the days were sunny and, for the most part, dry, reported Shane Sweet, NYPGA’s executive director.
Today’s domestic propane supply is more subject to global pressures, and that means U.S. marketers of the fuel have to monitor international influences and be more responsive in their business practices, an analyst and trading expert told attendees. See Fuel Oil News’ interview with the analyst here and in the December issue of Fuel Oil News.
The Golf Outing had 20 golfers at the CenterPoint Golf Club. Winners included the team of Shawn Litchfield of P3 and Mike Hopsicker of Ray Murray with lowest score of 67. Longest Drives went to Christian Beaule of Superior Gas Liquids and Kim Nachbar of Crestwood, and Closest to Pin went to Gordy Shanor of Fairview Fittings. The Conference was held Oct. 16-17.
