In Kansas you must bury the Butane Tank or it would freeze solid in the winter time. When Propane came along Butane lost it's popularity because Propane did not freeze and the tank could be left sitting on top of the ground.

When I was a young adult (back in the early 70's) I was told in answer to my question as to why so many old butane tanks found in our area was that years earlier butane was a popular bottled gas, more so than propane.Propane's later arrival and eventual dominance obsoleted butane and butane distributorship.

Hello Jared,

From a quick web search, it looks like the Propane Marketers
Association of Kansas was founded in 1942.

Hope this is helpful,
