Instead of pushing ahead with a comprehensive energy bill, as House Democrats attempted over the past two years with failed climate control legislation, Boehner talked about "bite-size chunks" that could be accomplished more easily. "Why wouldn't we have a bill to encourage vehicles to use natural gas and do it by itself," Boehner asked, using the same formula for separate legislation to encourage more oil and gas exploration in the United States and feeding royalties from such projects "to support more green energy."
President Obummer will be speaking on energy soon. Any chance he mentions natural gas? My gut reaction is no, since it makes too much sense, but you never know. Maybe monkeys will fly out of his butt and he does mention NG.
