It has to be the tax issue, because KMP and ARLP are getting whacked too and ARLP is in coal, not gas.
On the fracking issue, Vermont does not start trends, they just make statements. They are weirder than owl sh-t. I once read an obit in the Burlington paper that really explained what vermonters were all about. Some 82 year old woman died and her obit said "Although not a native, she lived in Vermont for 81 years."
i believe, because all mlps are down,people or big money are selling to cover margin calls or to buy other blue chips, since they had agood run.Longer term, you use energy the minute you wake up,stay long!
