You're correct in a sense...Natural gas is cheap...right now. Fracking is about to become heavily regulated and drive the cost up. I have a few
family members that work on setting up the pumping stations and they have been told it is coming.
Obama has a boner for coal. It is one of our cheapest and most abundant resources and he (an others) are regulating it to extinction. I'm sorry, I
am not ready to go all gas or all nuke power and until the so called "green and clean" energies (which create their own industrial waste problems)
are cheap and efficient...I want to see coal left on the table and not killed. "ya gotta dance with who brung ya" and coal is a huge reason we were
successful to this point. I am not saying it should never go the way of the dodo...but...I don't think it's right to create higher energy costs
just because it's politically correct to do so...now IS NOT the time to jack up people's home operation costs.
Just my opinion and kinda off topic...sorry.
The "State of the Union Address" is going to be another dog an pony show (elephant and donkey show?). They will tell the herds what they want to
hear..."All is going well, it's still hard out there but it's getting better"...and 65% of the idjets watching will be like this..
