Take a look at Suburban Propane (ticker SPH). They are resellers of propane. They own the tanks they deliver to making it costly for customers to switch. They are down a bit due to competition from low cost natural gas. But they seem to be well managed and not likely to go away soon.

Current yield is 8.96% (according to Google Finance). Its a reit and has extra income tax paperwork, but I avoid that by holding in an IRA.
