Propane: The American Fuel

Stop sending Money Overseas for Foreign Oil. You can support our domestic economy and help generate American jobs with a fuel made right here in the U.S.A. 98% of our nation’s propane is produced in the U.S., using propane means decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.

Propane is Clean

Approximately equal amounts of propane come from the refining of crude oil and from natural gas. Propane is a graciously accessible, secure energy source whose environmental benefits are widely acknowledged. Propane is an approved, alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act, as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.

Propane Makes for More Jobs

Propane production maintains quality jobs in our nation. As of 2012, more than 145,000 laborers across the U.S. are working in propane trade, wholesale, and sales.

 Propane is Affordable

Despite declines in oil prices, domestic propane production is expected to continue to grow rapidly.

Propane is Abundant

The U.S. is propane’s top producer. America yields more than enough propane to meet demand. Propane is an abundant bridge fuel, making it a clean-burning alternative to gasoline and diesel.
