Propane was discovered by Dr. Walter O. Snelling in 1910 when a car owner asked him why a gallon of gasoline was gone when he got home. He discovered while experimenting a large part of gasoline was actually propane, butane, and other hydrocarbons. He also found out it could be used for lighting, metal cutting, and cooking. Today we use propane to heat our homes, fuel our stoves, and many are still finding many other applications.
