CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED PROPANE SERVICE
ABOUT GASCO PROPANE
Ed & Rhonda Simmons, owners & operators of Gasco Energy Supply, LLC, opened for business in 1985 at their kitchen table. Each of their unique upbringings in the propane industry served as their base to pursue their passions of providing Central Missouri with all of its propane gas needs.
Ed’s fascination with propane began as a very young boy while keeping up with his father, Clifford E. Simmons Sr., at Ready Gas formally based in Eldon, MO. This propane fascination has developed into a full-fledged obsession for propane, propane accessories, & big-rig trucking. Ed’s insatiable appetite for providing the loyal residential, commercial, & agriculture customers the latest & most up-to-date propane knowledge, technology & service have established a superior propane delivery & service company that is locally owned & operated.
