Who are those ‘Friends of Natural Gas?’

September 29, 2011

As one drives around this area, one sees a number of road signs proclaiming “Friends of Natural Gas.”

What is this organization and who are its friends? A quick search reveals that the organization is “A project of America’s Natural Gas Alliance.” According to the Wall Street Journal of February 25, 2009, that group was “founded by industry heavyweights as Newfield Exploration Co., Devon Energy Corp. and Chesapeake Energy Corp.”

Are they your friends? Not mine.
