A little hike in Natural Gas Prices may be good for exploration. But we need to keep on converting trucks and buses to CNG as well as cars. And it's happening. Natural gas may be something we can export in the future to help with our balance of payments and save the dollar.

Lets hope that rise will be short lived and we all need the natural gas prices to drop or at least be stabilized this year.

We need to push Obama to cut the exports.
