Re: Natural Gas versus Crude Oil/DJ

HI DJ. I've been reading about the big boom and almost zero unemployment rate in North Dakota. I read the local grocery stores can't keep enough groceries in stock to supply all the new Oil and Gas workers flooding into the State. It doesn't surprise me of the big Oil and Gas finds as my dad's side of the family is from southern Manitoba just above North Dakota. And my mom's side of the family was from North Dakota. And on the Manitoba homestead they found Oil on their property over 60-80 years ago and made money on it. They said years ago there was a hell of a lot more there too but at the time it wasn't feasible to get it out of the ground. So now the entire area is producing the stuff with new technology. I think at some point LNG will be a major export some day just like Crude is today. But main thing is the jobs produced and home grown energy reserves for everyone. Hopefully 'they' wont screw it all up and manage it well for decades to come.
