What is Propane?
Propane — sometimes known as liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG — is a gas

Where Does Propane Come From?
Propane is primarily a byproduct of domestic natural gas processing, though
some propane is produced from crude oil refining and from renewable sources.
U.S. propane supplies are becoming increasingly abundant due in large part to
increased supplies of natural gas.
Who Uses Propane?
Propane is used in 12 million households as well as many businesses for heat and
water heating, indoor cooking, clothes drying, and backup power. Tens of millions more
use it for outdoor cooking. Additionally, many industries increasingly choose propane to
fuel vehicles and equipment cost-effectively while lowering emissions.
How is Propane Distributed?
With up to 56,000 miles of pipeline and thousands of propane suppliers
nationwide, propane is widely available and easily portable. For vehicles, there are
thousands of propane autogas refueling stations across the country. Propane is
the only alternative fuel with fueling stations in every state.
