Could you pass this gas under glass?

I guess I may be a little dangerous when it comes to treasure hunting. Well, this site is called "Confessions of..." I enjoy finding the odd and peculiar and then somehow trying to translate out the humor or the human drama. It got to be one or the other, right? Take this paperweight for example:
I found this at an estate sale in Westport, CT. This sculpture was trapped in lucite and I wanted to know more about it. I wondered if I could break the plastic or melt it down just to get at the art work. I thought it would help me figure it out. Then I just decided to turn it over:
  Well, that explains it! But not really, because there is no information about the magazine called "GAS" (Which I must get a copy of for the coffee table). There is no liquified natural gas facility in San Diego, and if there is I don't think the larger version of the sculpture is there anymore. You call that progress? I can only hope a reader from San Diego will find this post, head down to the gas plant, and snap a picture of it...any takers?
