    Check the website I linked to above. It shows an opening for drivers in CC, most likely for LPG.

    Nice!! Ive been wanting to get into lpg cuz crude is pretty cut throat right now. whats the difference between lpg and crude hauling? lpg needs to stay pressurized right?

    Yes, LPG is loaded under pressure, and it says pressurized while in transit. Most of the trailers I pull are rated for 250 or 265 PSI, but the pressure usually stays around 150.

    Compared to crude, LPG is gravy. You don't have to take samples, climb tanks, or do any of that, you just load and go. You're usually on paved roads and loading at plants, so you don't have to try to make sense of lease maps or beat yourself up going down crappy lease roads. Also, there's no H2S to worry about.

    LPG is under a lot of pressure and is very cold. The propane we haul boils at -44°F. If it gets on you, I'm sure it would probably cause frostbite, so you need to make sure you protect yourself when making & breaking connections. I wear mechanic's gloves, and I bought a face shield for my hard hat. A rubber apron is a good idea, too; my employer provides them.

    Always carry extra O-rings, a brass mallet, and a very small (6" or 8") pipe wrench.
