What do you mean by "more explosive" and what do you mean by "gas"?

If you are talking about gasoline, gasoline won't explode or ever burn
until you vaporize it.

Once vaporized, it only burns in a narrow range of fuel to air mixture
and explodes in an even narrower range.

If by "more explosive" you mean ease of ignition, it would be a gasoline
air mixture. Contrary to movies, dynamite doesn't explode when you stick
a fuse in it; it takes something more.

If by "more explosive" you mean energy by weight, then it would probably
be gasoline vapor.

If by "more explosive" you mean energy by volume, then it would probably
be dynamite.

So, what do you want to know?
