One solution is natural gas. Abundant, domestic, price-competitive, clean — natural gas has many advantages over oil.

Abundance is perhaps at the top of the list. The Potential Gas Committee PGC estimates that the U.S. has 1,451 trillion cubic feet Tcf of recoverable natural gas, out of a total natural gas resource base of 2,119 Tcf. Thats good for about a 100-year supply less if natural gas consumption increases. Also, of the 22.8 Tcf of natural gas the U.S. consumed in 2009, 90% was produced in the U.S.
