If there is a leakage of LPG does it rise up or come down in the atmosphere? Why? 

Answer

Another reason why care should be taken during storage is that LPG vapor is heavier than air, so any leakage will sink to the ground and accumulate in low lying areas and may be difficult to disperse. LPG expands rapidly when its temperature rises.
