Despite an explosion of use price has stayed stable.

Well, I think we have very different ideas of what constitutes stable. Historically, the price of gas has been very sensitive to demand.

I'm 100% in favor of fracking all the gas we can get, but likewise, I'm all for drilling as much oil as we can, too.

The introduction of cars with natural gas tanks and that run on pure ethanol will be a step in the right direction, but there's an economic cost involved with that, too. It's going to get worse before it gets better, and as I've said, the next four years are going to suck for the non-wealthy regardless of who got elected yesterday.

Incidentally, with ethanol, I am scared to death of what's happening with the price of corn. Farmers are feeding their livestock some really funky stuff to save money...
