yes , it is very deadly to you and the people around you.


Yes and no. If you inhale the gas for a long period of time it can make you become lacksidasical. or sleepy and you can die from the methane which replaces the oxygen in your blood stream. It is also very explosive and people have been burned or have died from that . If you have a gas leak in your area, I doubt that would harm you to any degree. If you have a gas leak in your house, contact the gas company and they will fix it fast.
