Gas tank rental - steel price increase???

2 posts in this topic

How's it possible, when you have a gas tank sunk into the ground and you're paying a fixed rental fee, they suddenly hike the monthly cost due to commodity prices? It's a small amount - relative to the price of gas whose price of course varies - but the principle's interesting.

Yet on the paperwork I know after 10 years I will own it, and the amount I would have paid for it over that time. 

I'm asking the firm where in the (very) small print contract it says 'the market price of steel can effect the price'! Anyone experienced this?

As the tank is a rental tank, it remains the property of the gas company and as such is a stock item that is liable to tax.. 

 

weather its 6 foot under your garden or sat on their stelf/warehouse, its their stock and taxes are due!

 

Be thankful its not copper... Those prices fluctuate horendously!
