David; somebody gave me a kerosene heater this last year and when I went to buy fuel for I found out why. I couldn’t find kerosene anywhere but the big box hardware stores or the farm supply store. The cost was $8- $9 per gallon. The stations that used to sell it were just that, no longer sold it anymore. Couldn’t get any. It turns out the refinery in San Antonio stop making it. I went to a fuel distributor and learned this. They told me that they were going to be getting some from Houston. In the spring! This was back in Oct. 2010 that I was looking for it. I don’t think the price has gotten any better. Got me a sunflower head, doing propane now.
