About Propane

Propane, also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LP-gas), is one of the nation's most versatile sources of energy. This safe fuel serves approximately 60 million people in the United States in millions of homes, industry, farming and more.

  • More than 14 million families use propane to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fire places, dryers and range tops.
  • Many choose this clean-burning fuel for bus, taxi, delivery and other fleets to minimize air pollution in metropolitan areas.
  • Propane has always been a “green” fuel, far ahead of today’s trend.
  • Propane is used on more than 660,000 farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, standby generators and other farm equipment. It is an essential fuel for crop drying, flame cultivation, fruit ripening, space and water heating and food refrigeration.
  • Propane is easy to transport and used in areas beyond natural gas mains.
  • Because it is 270 times more compact as a liquid than as a gas, it is economical to store and transport as a liquid.
