The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Stock Advisor analyst Jim Mueller and analyst Jason Moser discuss topics across the investing world.
Jim talks with Jason about the situation in the 1990s, when natural gas prices were as low as they are today. Independent power producers built lots of natural gas energy plants, only to see natural gas prices rise in the mid-2000s. With large supplies holding prices down today and many calling natural gas the saving grace of U.S. energy needs, Jim's concerned that history may rhyme and investors could be caught.
