Hey all,

anybody know how many pounds a gallon of propane weighs?

My wife has started a small business and we can easily track propane use by pounds with a scale. Unfortunately, everyone around here sells and prices it by gallons so it makes it a little hard in the early days doing cost estimates. So a conversion factor would be nice, if one of y'all has one.

Hope everyone's enjoying the weekend.
thanks for your help,
