Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Blue Rhino and AmeriGas, who supply propane exchange tanks to retail stores such as Walmart, Lowes, and thousands of others. It has been alleged that, starting in the spring of 2008, Blue Rhino and AmeriGas used a spike in propane prices to raise their margins by reducing the amount of propane contained in its exchange tanks from 17 pounds to 15 pounds, without reducing the wholesale price. It has been further alleged that Blue Rhino and AmeriGas colluded by secretly and illegally agreeing to force retailers who sold their propane to accept the fill reduction, who then passed the price increase along to consumers.
