America’s Most Underrated Energy Reality: Low and Lower Cost Natural Gas

Jude Clemente of RealClearEnergy writes about the benefits of affordable natural gas.

“Low prices for U.S. gas truly are a great thing. Gas is now second to sister fuel oil and supplies 33% of our energy – and 40% of our electricity, double the share of second-place coal. Low and stable natural gas prices have benefitted families and helped businesses reduce costs, saving a family of four, for instance, $2,500 per year since 2007.”
