In gravity there is no motion as such, its a vaccum and so gases cant be spread easily for distribution

The LPG gas we use at home is heavier than gravity. hence it has tendency to settle down at the bottom surface of the floor. Hydrogen on the other hand is lighter than gravity and hence it has tendency to go away from ground (earth). hydrogen balloon is an example.
