Welcome to Yates Gas!

Serving Nantucket Since 1973

At Yates Gas, we have been providing safe, reliable propane delivery and service to Nantucket residents, businesses and seasonal customers since 1973. Our company has 25 employees who live year-round on Nantucket, as well as a few who live off-island. We are proud to say that our employees boast a collective 150-plus years of experience in the propane industry. No one else on the island can make that claim.

Just like you, we live and work here. Many of our Yates Gas families go back several generations on the island. Nantucket is important to us. That is why we are committed to providing our customers with the most qualified, experienced service in the industry. We want nothing less for our friends and neighbors.

Smell gas? If you detect a gas leak, call your local propane provider or the fire department immediately.


Propane is a hydrocarbon (C3H8) and is sometimes referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LP-gas or LPG. Propane is produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining. It is nontoxic, colorless and virtually odorless. As with natural gas, an identifying odor is added so the gas can be readily detected.
