This announcement was released on Friday, September 15 from Gray, Gray and Gray:

We are pleased to announce the release of this year’s Energy & Propane Industry Survey results!

This year, we introduced a streamlined survey, while still providing the important benefits of helping to establish the most up-to-date industry benchmarks and the standards by which company performance is measured. We also placed an increased focus on two important and timely topics – workforce development and key business concerns, such as electrification. We were pleased to partner with Angus Energy, a respected energy services firm, who provided statistics and data to supplement survey responses, and with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), a nonprofit that provides leading propane safety and training programs.

“This year’s survey tackled some of the most immediate and pressing issues facing energy and propane dealers,” says Marty Kirshner, CPA, MSA, the Partner leading Gray, Gray & Gray’s Energy Practice Group. “Hiring, vehicle costs, rising operating expenses – all are common challenges faced by companies in the industry. Yet there remains significant optimism about being able to resolve these issues and remain viable in the years ahead.”

We invite you to download the complete results online today and compare these “industry average” results with the performance of your own business.

The results of the Gray, Gray & Gray Propane Survey can be found here.
