ThompsonGas went well beyond their customer service duties as they personally handled my account as if I were a part of their family. They were kind, thorough, and knowledgeable and spent as much time as needed until my issues were resolved. A+++ service!
We switched over to Thompsongas for our welding class supplies and we have been very pleased with the service. The reason for our switch was due to problems with a previous supplier, so we have been very pleased that Thompsongas has been so reliable and efficient.
Technician was extremely friendly and informative. Matt was his name, if I’m not mistaken. Showed me all of the ins and outs of our system and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of.

What is Propane?
Propane — sometimes known as liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG — is a gas
normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It is nontoxic, colorless, and
odorless; an identifying odor is added so it can be detected. Propane is most
commonly used for space and water heating, for cooking, and as fuel for engine
applications such as forklifts; however, its applications are rapidly growing due to

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.
