[GreenYes] Re: A clarification

My guess is Susan meant petroleum? NG is mostly methane--found in
underground reservoirs, but also scavenged in the petroleum refining process
(and siphoned out of landfills, of course). In any case, it¹s a hydrocarbon
and getting more expensive every day. Just a decade ago the US had the
cheapest NG in the world, now it is the most expensive. Any cost-benefit
analysis you read from the early 1990s may be suspect.
