This property has a 1,000 gallon propane tank. The tank is owned by Northern New Mexico Gas Company, and a small fee is paid every June for its rental. In exchange, the gas company is responsible for its care and maintenance. A large propane tank is important in this area because it helps guarantee that propane will not run low in winter if the trucks encounter difficulty getting here. Propane trucks in this area are generally not four wheel drive, so they prefer to fill less often in the winter.
