    Here is an interesting story from Utah about cars converting to natural gas.


    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/30/business/30gascars.html?th&emc=th


    I've been closely watching the stock market this week and all the companies involved in making things to drill natural gas are shooting higher in price as they have discovered how to get the gas deeper in the ground.

    Also, this means that solar energy is a no go for awahile because this gas boom will keep natural gas prices cheap.

    Very prophetic. Hydraulic fracturing. And see how far it's come in the last 4 years?

    Today, natural gas is less than half the price it was when this thread was started.

    I think you can expect a blowback in the natural gas pricing.

    The public objection to FRACKING isn't going away.

    As more and more evidence comes to light about how toxic this process is, and as more and more Americans find the ground waters polluted, FRACKING is going to get way more expensive, hence the market for nature gas is going to drive the cost up.

    NIMBY will never go away, so you are right in that regard. But the process being toxic? The misunderstandings and ignorance that NIMBY is based on doesn't make the process toxic.
