Natural gas, at prices significantly below BTU parity with oil for a long time to come, will certainly play a pivotal role in world energy supply and will move towards becoming the premier fuel of the world economy. A significant feature of future gas prices is that they are likely to be technology driven, similar to oil prices, rather than resources driven.
