    natural gas

    Propane gas is used by people without Natural gas line availability. Since Liquid Nat. gas is portable, my question is with LNG becoming the thing of the future, is propane in danger of being replaced by the upsurge of LNG. Comments, please.

    • In my neck of the woods I've ever seen a Nat. gas tank. nor have a heard of portable nat gas.
      LNG is principally used for transporting natural gas to markets, where it is regasified and distributed as pipeline natural gas. It can be used in natural gas vehicles, although it is more common to design vehicles to use compressed natural gas. Its relatively high cost of production and the need to store it in expensive cryogenic tanks have hindered widespread commercial use.
