The vector gluon propagator of quantum chromodynamics is investigated by means of the gauge technique. The technique provides a self-consistency equation for the propagator from which one may recover the asymptotic freedom behaviour p2 Delta to (1+ gamma ln(-p2/ mu 2))-1 in the ultraviolet regime p2>> mu 2. The corresponding behaviour in the infrared limit p2<< mu 2 is found to be p2 Delta approximately (1n(-p2/ mu 2))-2.
