Pilot Flying J, a big coast-to-coast chain of truck stops, is installing natural-gas pumps at 150 of its 450 fueling stations over the next two years. Now a trucker can easily carry goods across the continent in a natgas-fueled vehicle.

United Parcel Service (UPS) is adding 48 trucks to its natural-gas-fueled fleet. The tractor-trailers travel between Las Vegas and Southern California, relying partly on UPS' own fueling stations.

These steps are just snapshots of a larger revolution that is gripping the energy industry and may profoundly impact consumers and business — for the better.

After decades of rising prices, hostile foreign suppliers and warnings that Americans will have to bicycle to work, the world faces the possibility of vast amounts of cheap, plentiful fuel. And the source for much of this new supply? The U.S.

"If this is true, this could be another dominant American century," said Brian Wesbury, chief economist at First Trust Advisors, money managers in Wheaton, Ill.

U.S. natural-gas production is growing 4% to 5% a year, driven by sharply higher shale gas output. Shale gas production is forecast at 7.609 trillion cubic feet this year, up 11.6% from 2011 and 12 times the 2004 level.

Political Obstacles

Challenges remain, including political hurdles. It remains to be seen whether the U.S. can achieve the holy grail of energy self-sufficiency. But economists aren't ruling out the possibility.

"This is credible," said Mike Montgomery, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight. He says that if the U.S. reaches self-sufficiency, its vast stores of natural gas will make the difference.

Natgas prices have plunged 83% since their December 2005 peak, which is why truckers are switching over their fleets. Natgas now costs far less than diesel, truckers' longtime fuel of choice.

----------

We don't need no stnkin' COAL!!

We gots enough natural gas and oil reserves to cut our dependence on foreign sources a lot.

Think what that will do for our balance of trade deficits. They'll become surpluses.

Thank you Mr. Obama, for the foresight to move America from dirty coal to clean natural gas.

It is relatively cheap to convert a gasoline powered car to ng. Honda sells cars that run on ng. Soon there'll be lots of CNG cars on the road.

An Outlook for Marcellus Shale Midstream and Pipeline Companies

Higher demand from growing East Coast markets coupled with favorable economics even at currently low prices point to a continued boom in natural gas production from the Marcellus shale play according to a new report from Fitch Ratings. The firm cites a consensus estimate for production to rise from its current level of 4 billion cubic feet/day to more than 10 billion cubic feet/day over the next five years.

The ratings agency has looked at 10 pipeline and midstream companies with an eye to both transportation and processing facilities. These MLPs include Enterprise Products Partners LP (NYSE: EPD), EQT Corp.(NYSE: EQT), MarkWest Energy Partners L.P.(NYSE: MWE), National Fuel Gas Co.(NYSE: NFG), NiSource Inc.(NYSE: NI), Rockies Express Pipeline LLC (a joint venture of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners L.P.(NYSE: KMP), ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) and Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE)), Spectra Energy Corp.(NYSE: SE), Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P.(NYSE: SXL), Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co.(owned by Kinder Morgan), and Williams Partners L.P.(NYSE: WPZ).

The main appeal of the Marcellus shale play is its proximity to the populated markets of the Northeast and Atlantic Coast regions. Fitch expects pipeline expansion and reversal projects, as well as additional processing plants to come online as production grows. Here's a quick look at each company, along with an implied gain based on today's share price.

Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) has proposed building a 1,230-mile pipeline to transport ethane — a natural gas liquid (NGL)— from the southern Marcellus shale play to Texas. The pipeline will involve reversing the flow of a refined products pipeline and building about 450 miles of new pipeline at a cost of about $1.3 billion. Shippers have not yet fully committed to taking all the capacity on the 190,000 barrel/day ATEX pipeline, which is set to be in service by early 2014. Fitch gives Enterprise a first-mover advantage here and expects the pipeline to be fully committed once it is put into service. Enterprise shares are trading at $51.61 today, and the consensus target price is $56.23, for an implied gain of around 9%.

----------

EPD is my favorite MLP.

Everyone should own some. 90% of the income is tax protected, considered a ROC.

Want to cut your tax burden?? Own MLP's for income and tax deferral. There's a bunch of good ones listed above.
