or methane soda water - same idea, a bit less dangerous.

       Neither are very soluble in water as a liquid but methane clathrate is being investigated for storage.

       The real issue when it comes to storage--of anything--is how much space it takes up, and if you infuse water with a hazardous gas, you're storing the gas _and_ the water. Not to say that the infusion will take up twice the space of the separate components, but it will take up more space than just the gas, and it will be much heavier, which hikes transportation costs.

       Acetylene is transported in pressurised cylinders as a solution in Acetone.   

       It seems to work fairly well, certainly compared with Plan "A" which was just to compress raw Acetylene in a steel tank ...   

       Maybe you could make a fizzy spirit drink using a gas soluble in Ethanol.   

       Oh, and what [FT] said.

       because you can store a lot of volume at a relatively low pressure, just like soda.

       Except that you can't; carbon dioxide is a special case, being much more soluble in water than hydrogen and most other gases.

       Don't give up - just store the hydrogen in the oxidised form, which is soluble in water.
