With all the gas that's available it's hard to believe the price would rise much.

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.

Industry will push exports until the US price match World Market 300% of the current price.

We need to push Obama to cut the exports.

Comeback? Never went away. It's just increasing in use as the prices drop. This article says the prices are going up, but it's only a recent increase. Looking at prices for years, it is still a very good value.
