For almost 80 years, Blue Star Gas distributed propane throughout the U.S. West Coast on trucks mostly powered by gasoline. Now the company is working to convert its 55 vehicles to run on the same stuff they deliver.

Walking through the front door of the new Blossman Gas showroom in Asheville, N.C., customers are tempted by a vast array of propane-fueled appliances that can make them feel like “kids in a candy store.” But in this case, it’s eye candy for homeowners, who can easily visualize how the many products on display could enhance their lifestyle. Whether it’s a new barbecue grill to transform a simple dinner into a feast, a new fireplace and surround to make a living space cozier, or a new tankless hot water heater to make a long shower more enjoyable, Blossman Gas has thought of everything. And the best way to describe this showroom is “WOW!!”

Lassetter Propane LLC based in Cedartown, GA has been acquired by Blossman Gas, Inc. Its 1500 customers will join Blossman’s customer base of 150,000. Opened in 2007 in Cedartown, GA, Lassetter and its 7 employees serve Coweta County and surrounding communities.

Blossman Gas acquired Virginia-based Dixie Gas, Blossman reports. The company currently serves more than 150,000 customers in 12 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states.
