Yeah, a better solution is to use the NG at power plants to provide the electricity for those electric cars. I kind of like electric cars because of their quieter operation and fewer mechanical parts to break down. But the libs disapprove of fracking and pipelines that might annoy spotted ground slugs or some other bit of wildlife. They don't like oil for similar reasons. They don't like nuclear because of radiation. They don't like coal because it's dirty. They don't like hydro or geothermal power because it disrupts nature. They only like wind and solar, which are not yet cost-effective and capable of producing enough energy for us. So I expect prices on all energy to go up. May be a good time to invest in those futures...
