I think nat. gas will pay off sooner than many think.
I reference the LNG facility Cheniere has in place at Sabine, the additional 'trains' they are constructing--or getting permission to build-timed with the expansion of the Panama Canal. Nat. Gas sells for what..$14 or $15 overseas as opposed to our $3.5 and I see a tremendous market in the Asian regions not to mention Europe.
I also believe there are others applying for LNG export licenses.
