Fracking has made it possible for us to access more natural gas than ever before, and that natural gas comes with many benefits.
With hydraulic fracturing and state-of-the-art technology, like above ground water storage tanks and frac water recycling, we are now able to access natural gas that we have never been able to touch previously. Not only will this natural gas lessen our dependence on foreign oil and lead us into the future, it has many benefits that consumers can enjoy all over the United States and Canada. The following is a list of just a couple of the many advantages of natural gas for consumers.
#1. Consumers can save more with natural gas.
Heating oil is one of the most expensive ways to heat your home, and unfortunately, since the majority of our oil is imported, the price of that oil is impacted by international events. In fact, James Hamilton, who is an economist from the University of California, has found that 10 out of the last 11 recessions in the United States were associated with high oil prices. On the other hand, fracking has made natural gas a domestic product. Not only does this translate into monthly savings for consumers, it also protects our economy as a whole. Keep in mind that making the switch to natural gas may be an investment, but it is an investment that will help you save more each and every month.
#2. Natural gas is readily available.
As we stated above, natural gas is now a domestic product, and it readily available all over the United States and Canada. This means that you don’t have to worry about your supply of natural gas running low or your prices going up in the near future.
