Gases include medical anesthetics as well as gases used in household or commercial products. Medical anesthetic gases include ether, chloroform, halothane, and nitrous oxide, commonly called "laughing gas."

Household or commercial products containing gases include butane lighters, propane tanks, whipped cream dispensers, and refrigerants.
