FerrellGas has purchased Bennett Gas Company, a propane dealer based in Augusta, GA, FerrellGas announced earlier today.
That makes three buys in three months for the Kansas-based propane giant, after a pair of acquisitions in Pennsylvania and California this fall. The price of the deal was not announced.
Bennett Gas serves parts of Georgia and South Carolina.
FerrellGas seems to be in expansion mode this heating season. In 2009, the company was the No. 2 retailer by volume, behind AmeriGas. So when the 2010 numbers are released, it could get interesting at the top.
