    Get ready everyone. Oil prices will once again sap the life out of the economy. Why on earth we don't have the foresight to invest in alternatives that will tranquilize the effect of this is beyond me. It's bad business America. We have known about this for decades yet we still act like our oil dependence isn't a big deal. It's like a crack addict who says he doesn't have a problem.

    The amount of NG that's come online since 2008 is awesome.


    Look at the NG-oil relationship, every day it gets wider.


    BTU for BTU NG is kicking oil's ass and we have so freaking damn much of NG.


    If you have dual-fuel units or have made a oil->NG switch recently you'd be astounded.
