How much do you know about propane? This clean, versatile alternative fuel source is becoming more and more popular across the country, and for good reasons. There is a good chance that your neighbors, family, and even yourself use propane without even knowing it!

Propane is a form of liquefied petroleum gas, and supplies about 4 percent of the country’s total energy needs. Like many gases, propane is naturally odorless. During the refinement process, an identifying odor is added to propane in order for leaks to be detected.

Many people are making the switch to propane in order to help the environment and support the United States economy. Propane is a verified clean alternative fuel source, as approved by the 1990 Clean Air Act. Propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels, and 90% of the country’s supply is produced domestically.
