      At the time of publication, crude oil is trading at $65 a barrel and natural gas is trading at about $ Natural gas prices have been declining for several years and are currently 50 percent off their peak. Typically, when a commodity drops this much in price, demand will increase and prices begin rising again. Once the transportation of natural gas was possible, new uses for natural gas were discovered. These included using natural gas to heat homes and operate appliances such as water heaters, ovens, and cooktops. Industry began to use natural gas in manufacturing and processing plants.

    The direct use of natural gas can help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil—working to keep over $1 billion energy dollars (and countless jobs) home every month America’s current natural gas supply is set to last well into the next century with a worldwide supply thought to be more plentiful than oil. Natural gas was unknown in Europe until its discovery in England in , and even then it did not come into wide use. Instead, gas obtained from carbonized coal (known as town gas) became the primary fuel for illuminating streets and houses throughout much of Europe from on.. In North America the first commercial application of a petroleum product was the utilization of natural gas from.

    natural gas, natural mixture of gaseous hydrocarbons found issuing from the ground or obtained from specially driven wells. The composition of natural gas varies in different localities. Its chief component, methane, usually makes up from 80% to 95%, and the balance is composed of varying amounts of ethane, propane, butane, and other hydrocarbon compounds. Natural gas was the United States' largest source of energy production in , representing 33 percent of all energy produced in the country. Natural gas has been the largest source of electrical generation in the United States since July In , the United States produced trillion cubic feet of marketed natural gas, with an average wellhead value of $ per thousand cubic feet.
