U.S. propane supplies are becoming increasingly abundant due in large part to increased supplies of natural gas.

  • The United States is a net exporter of propane, with 98% of propane used in the US sourced domestically.
  • Strong growth in propane supply is projected to come from the Marcellus shale play in the northeastern U.S. Industry insiders estimate the Marcellus shale single-handedly can supply more than 2 billion gallons of propane per year.
  • Because of the extreme growth in U.S. sources of propane, the U.S. produces more than enough propane to meet current demand.
