My buddy mentioned that PLANS
to bring a pipeline will happen. Personally, why not? Yes, I know the NE would be much more profitable. BUT think how much of an impact it would cause to the PROPANE industry. With NG as the competitor, propane companies would crap in their pants and most likely lower prices.
Sorry, But maybe you're not aware that propane is a derivative/byproduct of natural gas.
So the natural gas producer will never let the propane prices be more economical than their gas.
They have no great plans to add more residential infrastructure, their position is, if you're lucky enough to have gas line on your street in front of your house...great...if not...sorry bout your luck...buy propane.
Natural gas companies aren't lying awake at night trying to figure out how to get their gas to more of our homes.
They're figuring out how to compress it into a liquid to reduce it's volume of space and send it to market in bulk.
Other fuels, like our coal and wood pellets, are in demand in the European and Chinese markets and they have the MONEY
to pay the top rates. Europe want our wood pellets and China wants our coal. Who's inline for our NG?
The NG Boom now, will NOT
benefit us consumers, unless maybe you are getting your paycheck from it. The bigger benefit will be recognized by big business and the utilities.
Energy prices always do and will continue to fluctuate...but they will never be cheap...sorry.
