PROPANE

Home Heat - We offer two options for our home heat contracts, prepaid in full or paid 1/3 down with balance due at a later date. Another option is to utilize our budget program which calculates a monthly cost based on your previous usage. Another program we have available is our keep fill program in which our drivers are able to track usage based on weather conditions and patterns to better serve you.

Crop Drying - Contracting for dryer gas can prepaid in full or 8 cents per gallon prepaid. We also have the ability to service those who are able to take a transport load.

We also offer temporary tank sets for construction or others requiring a temporary heat source.

For any questions on the properties of propane or propane safety you can visit http://www.propane101.com/  or contact an energy team member who would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

REFINED FUELS

Premium Diesel - As a licensed Cenex distributor we carry their branded premium fuel line which includes Cenex Roadmaster XL, Cenex Ruby Fieldmaster, and Cenex Wintermaster. These are all premium fuels which contain the seven ingredient additive package exclusive to Cenex fuels.

Automated Fuel Delivery - This monitoring system is very beneficial for everyone! It allows you to pay for your fuel as you use it instead of tying cash up in a delivery that you aren't going to use. Using this consumption billing also adds a layer of risk protection by billing based on price averages rather than spot prices so you don't get stuck paying full price during a price spike.

LUBRICANTS

As a Cenex distributor Glacial Plains Cooperative also has access to the full line of Cenex Lubricants. This product line covers everything from industrial hydraulic, heavy duty diesel engine oil, tractor fluids, and more! These products are all available as packaged products and a few of the more common fluids are available in bulk as well. Looking for a grease? We can handle that too! The full line of Cenex greases is also available through our energy department.

Don't have a bulk system and want one? No problem! We have a couple options to get you set up with a bulk tote system!

Not sure which lubricant is right for your application? Give us a call or visit www.cenex.com and use the equipment lookup tool under the lubricant tab.

TOTAL PROTECTION PLAN

Using Cenex products comes with a unique benefit in the Cenex Total Protection Plan Warranty. The use of Cenex lubricants allows Cenex to stand behind their product and financially cover a wide variety of breakdowns that you may have. With the variety of components being covered through your machine it gives the peace of mind knowing you are covered. For more information or to answer any questions you may have please call Adam Wilbur at 320-557-5151 and he will be happy to assist you in any way he can.

MARKET NEWS

Friday, February 16, 2018

Oil prices are being supported by a rebound in equity markets and a weak dollar, but rising US output is still keeping a lid on prices. Slight increases are expected in oil markets today, as traders cover their positions going into the weekend.

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Oil prices showed weakness in over-night trading as a weak dollar and rising crude inventories outweighed the bullish comments from Saudi Arabia of drawing oil stocks down to the five-year average. A futures price correction is expected today as some analysts are stating that the moves yesterday seem to have been "overdone".

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Bearish API data released yesterday afternoon has the energy complex lower overnight and into early trade this morning as traders await confirmation from the EIA report that will be out at 9:30 this morning. Something to keep an eye on is their reported 2.3 million bbls drop in Cushing inventories which if comes to fruition would put the stock level at more than a three year low of 34 million bbls. Inventory reports will be the focal point today as other news headlines remain quiet at this point.
