Hundreds of thousands of industrial sites use propane for bronzing, vulcanizing, space heating, soldering, cutting, and more. Restaurants use it for heating, cooling, and cooking, and laundromats use it to try clothes. Propane is used by 60 million people in the United States, including 8.1 million households.
