...and yet another example of American energy policies NOT looking out after the American consumer, first:
" Overall American dry natural gas production is rising. But it's not increasing so quickly as to offset surging U.S. gas exports via pipelines and liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes, which have been setting this year. Scorching summer heat waves and low natural gas inventories have also driven natural gas prices higher over the past few months."
...and if you think this exact same thing is not going to happen with crude oil, your nuts. It will, soon.
