The Washington Post editorial board puts strong support behind Natural Gas exploration. Urges Democrat elected officials, both federal and state, to get behind its development.
The president is right. The United States sits atop seas of natural gas, a fuel that drives electric turbines, warms homes, heats water and even powers some big trucks. Much of this gas is in unconventional deposits that drillers have only begun to tap. Now that they have, the price of the fuel has plummeted and the United States has gone from a gas importer to a potential exporter, with decades of supply left.
