Natural gas is a naturally occurring mixture that is colorless, shapeless, and odorless. It is a versatile energy source that includes providing electricity to buildings, fueling cars for transportation, and for manufacturing and industrial uses. When used as transportation fuel, natural gas can save consumers 20 to 30 percent.

Propane is a hydrocarbon produced from the combination of natural gas processing and crude oil refining. Propane is non-toxic, and also colorless and odorless. It is often used to fuel everyday appliances including heaters, furnaces, outdoor grills, and air conditioning units.
