I’m a bit ambivalent about the low gas prices. I think it’s a sign that we are diversifying our energy portfolio which is good. But by keeping production high, it also shows how far foreign oil producers will go to discourage alternative fuel pathways. It’s important that we don’t become myopic and let short term economics drive a national policy that needs to take the long view and consider sustainability, security, and climate change.
