    The cost NG is going up, above coal, and is still not profitable for the NG companies, and this is a good thing for industry? I think what we are seeing is what everyone already knew, and that's NG companies could not sustain their low prices for long. NG is expensive to get out, store, and transport. A price rise for NG does not = bull market if there cheaper alternatives.
