I sense there is market manipulation by members of congress. I cannot prove that, but since they, the government and natural gas companies, say they have more access to natural gas than ever before. Then why is the price of natural gas going up? You also have government over regulations by the EPA that add to the cost of natural gas, for that matter, all fossil fuels. Like you said, it affect all products we take for granted in our lives. Our own legislators do not trust our own government, and therefore must erect barriers, and thus costs. Big sigh!

A very recent article on peak oil and its economic consequences:

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2013/dec/23/british-petroleum-geologist-peak-oil-break-economy-recession

"Dr. Miller critiqued the official industry line that global reserves will last 53 years at current rates of consumption, pointing out that "peaking is the result of declining production rates, not declining reserves." "

Dr Miller was a high level BP geologist who prepared in house oil supply projections for the company. As he says. it is about declining production rates not declining reserves. We are not finding the giant oil fields that pumped for 50 years at a high rate. It's like we are finding and flowing a lot of 5/8 inch pipe type wells that deplete 90% in five years. The Saudi giant fields were like 22 inch pipes that flowed for 50 years. Finally, this idea will start to become main stream. Then we can have the ag and energy discussion that we need to have.
