The Truth About Exporting Natural Gas

The debate over whether it would be good for the economy to allow expanding the export of natural gas is both a hot topic and one which is very difficult to fully answer. While companies, including Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK  ) and Exxon-Mobil (NYSE: XOM  ) , would certainly benefit from the export of natural gas, others, including Dow Chemical (NYSE: DOW  ) and Alcoa (NYSE: AA  ) , claim that they would be hurt by rising energy costs. These higher costs would be passed on to consumers and could actually hurt the economy.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the pros and cons of natural gas exporting and looks at the relative effects of the companies above and the economy as a whole.

As the debate over energy exports continues, one exciting investing opportunity has been slipping under Wall Street's radar for months. But it won't stay hidden much longer. Forward-thinking energy players like GE and Ford have already plowed sizable amounts of research capital into this little-known stock... because they know it holds the key to the explosive profit power of the coming "no choice" fuel revolution. Luckily, there's still time for you to get on board if you act quickly. All the details are inside an exclusive report from The Motley Fool. Click here for the full story!
