no your gauge is broken, propane is stored in a vacuum for the most efficiency.

/sarcasm.
Propane is usually inbetween 90 psi and sometimes over 100 depending on the temperature.

The pressure depends on the temperature, usually the vapor pressure is between 130-200 psi from 73 degrees f to 120 degrees.
