Shale gas could produce more than the 1 million jobs

cleveland.com -- CLEVELAND, Ohio -- An influential shale gas researcher said his early estimates of 1 million U.S. manufacturing jobs created by the ongoing energy boom may have been overly conservative.

"That figure didn't include what we're seeing in the automotive sector. It didn't include what we're seeing from parts of the steel sector," said PwC U.S. Industrial Products Manager Bob McCutcheon, who made his 1 million jobs by 2025 prediction in March. At the Cleveland Engineering Society's Annual Industrial and Manufacturing Conference, McCutcheon said he may have underestimated the amount of excitement surrounding the boom.

How would producing a million jobs "not necessarily" be the best Honda?

The job prospects are great and natural gas is good stuff. All is well if it can be produced without contaminating our groundwater with all of the poisons that are pumped down there. Time will tell.

Horse Feathers Yoyogas! You have gotta be one of the 73% angry men who voted for Mitt. Gas prices had little to do with the election. If you really believe that with all of the media attention this election has brought...I have some Beach front property here in OK to sell you. Not even Fox News said that. The Republicans lost in part because they:

1. Tried to buy the election and the American public could clearly see Rove's shenanigans.
2. Alienated a good portion of the electorate who were Women, People of Color, and younger Voters for a plethora of reasons.

Goes to show that as soon as the Republicans get their act together, appeal to all of the electorate with their platform, they may have a chance in 2016.

Shale gas could produce more than the 1 million jobs? Way too high, the jobs number is much lower than that!
An article on here said that less natural gas is being produced because there is NO profit to keep drilling and producing natural gas when the prices are so low.
As more and more vehicles are built to use natural gas OR converted over to natural gas, more natural gas will be used and the price will go up, just like the morning sun. Don't expect natural gas to stay low for very long, the trend for all fuel prices is always up and up! It does Not matter if you have to heat your house with it either, higher natural gas prices coming.
Big Oil and Big Gas exports fuel and natural gas to other countries that will pay more for it, much more than here. There will be NO price reduction or cheaper prices for natural gas IN the US, so it does NOT matter how much crude oil or natural gas is produced. More ground water polluted from fracking and other such activity.
'Coming out of the closet' Sneeky's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, the 'jobs' are Not here. Sneeky's economy is not improving but continues to hurt the population and the job numbers continue to be down. People will still drive and buy fuel no matter what but it sure helps to have a job too!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

With support from whose administration? Obama's?

Obama and his ilk hate fossil fuels; they will do everything in their power to stop development. They will regulate the industry to death, just like they are doing to coal.

Natural Gas is very good for City busses, school busses, trash collecting and short haul trucks. That is ready now. Maybe more in the future.
