One Response to Propane for Commercial Use

  1. I had no idea that propane is used in over a million commercial locations. That’s an incredibly high number, but it makes sense with how efficient I’ve heard propane is. My brother is going to be starting a business, and he’ll be using a commercial space. I’m sure he’ll need some sort of fuel for heating and things like that, so maybe he should use propane since so many other businesses do.
