Where does propane come from?

Propane is one of many petroleum hydrocarbons that come from either crude oil or natural gas wells. Almost 87% of the propane used in the United States is produced here, with about 55% of the US production being the by-product of natural gas.

Propane is considered a clean burning fuel and because of its portability it has been used around the world for more than fifty years. Some of its uses are cooking, heating, manufacturing, agriculture, recreational, petro-chemicals, propellants, and because it is considered a clean burning alternative fuel for gasoline and diesel, propane has gained recent popularity in transportation and warehouse (forklift) arena.
