Are neon lights made up of neon gases?
There is only one neon gas. It's name is neon. It is an element, and is on the periodic table of elements. It produces a red glow. There are other gases used in neon lights. Here they are along with their color of glow: Helium, peach glow. Argon, sky blue. Krypton, pale mauve. Xenon, pale violet. These colors combined with different colored glass make the neon signs you see every day be in all colors.

Asked in Marketing Advertising and Sales
What element is used in advertising signs?
It sounds like you are referring to "neon" signs. About 1/3 of all "neon" signs actually use tubes filled with very low pressure neon. The rest use other noble gases like helium, argon, krypton, and xenon - often with something like a minute amount of mercury added and a phosphor coating to the glass so that the resulting UV light produced when the gas is electrified can be converted to other colors by the phosphor coating (which fluoresces when bombarded by the UV).

Uses of gases in air?
Gases are separated from the air and have many uses. Argon is mainly used in incandescent light bulbs. Neon, and other noble gases are used in 'NEON SIGNS'. Carbon dioxide in fire extinguishers. Nitrogen is used in medical uses to freeze warts and remove them. Nitrogen is also used to make ammonia, used in fertilizer, explosives, etc. Oxygen is used medically to help patients breathe easier if their lungs aren't properly functioning. Also used to burn fuel for rockets. Also used for oxy-acetelyne torches to cut thru metals. That is all I can think of now.
