Will there be any effects of the sequestration cuts on the demand for NG? I guess it's possible that there will be cuts in government programs for Nuclear and Coal, thus creating even more NG demand.
If the general economy gets dampened, oil will fall more. Not so sure about Natural Gas production, it does not seem to be as closely correlated.
I think the fuel switch over of utilities is a big driver.
Whatever the form of budget cuts, you can be sure solar programs will get cut. Along with research dollars for alternative fuels. The solar company stocks are getting creamed in the last week.
"Cuts to alternative fuel research."
That's a certainty, but not much effect on Natural Gas usage or production.
thats a good q. maybe short term, but longer term these cats are spending massive amounts of money. Bernanke just said our debt is something like 70%of gdp. wow.
Regardless of a debtor society, people will still need energy. Better in NG than consumer stocks.
