Cheap abundant Natural Gas being used as a replacement for petroleum. This is just what that huckster T. Boone Pickens wanted. Except we didn't need any huge costly subsidies for windmills to do it. The market works it's magic without government meddling.

I agree with the natural gas "story" ... but I have a hard time believing I'll be getting my hands on any free natural gas. Buy $50 of gasoline and get your methane tank filled for free???

Even if nat gas was to be free at the wellhead, it wouldn't be free by the time it went through the pipeline and local distribution systems.
But I don't think it's really very likely to be free at the wellhead. The "byproduct of oil drilling" meme is overstated; some drilling sites are more nat-gas-intensive than are others.
