In 1980, in Vinton John Anderson and Thomas Pingenot started a propane delivery, service, and supply company. Originally based out of an office behind John's Qwik Stop, and then in the old feed store on C Avenue

In 1999 the CoreCraft Fiberglass Company of Bemidji Minnesota discontinued production of a wide fiberglass snow scoop known as the SnoWonder. The owner of T-J Gas had been a long time user of their product. Wanting to see production continue T-J Gas then purchased the SnoWonder business and now sells the SnoWonder Worldwide.
