In NYS, there is a public ed campaign going on,
about the "dangers of fracking". From what I can
figure, in PA, they do a LOT of hydro fracturing
to get the natural gas out of the ground, and no
one seems to think it's dangerous. In NYS, I used
to see a lot of signs with the circle slash "/FRACK/".
I suspect that's part of the admin's war on business
and war on cheap, effective products.

Depends on where you are, gas is popular where gas is cheap, the
folks had gas water heating and a gas clothes dryer for 40 years, most
of the neighbors had the same. Newer parts of town had houses that
were all-electric, there was that scare back in the '70s where we were
running out of NG and they stopped permits for it.
Electricity is going to go nowhere but up, what with power plants
being shut down per Big O's war on coal. Unless he puts the skids on
natural gas exploration, gas will continue to be the cheaper option
along the pipelines.
