Stephen what do you think about this trade below two box wow.
Well it's just been -- story here -- for the last three years to commodity bubble natural gas prices have just decouple from the rest of the energy complex.
In this come back BO scenario and economics.
High -- these are the best cure for high prices at ten years ago when everyone thought the united debate candidate -- running out of natural gas what happened.
Prices -- Unbelievable level that it's all that that there more than 100 dollars a barrel oil equivalent at a time when oil was -- trading at fifty dollars a barrel.

Supply -- continues to outweighed demand and that this.
Still -- that is up two dollars which is about sixty dollars a barrel oil equivalent it's still a bearish market.
Here is Steven this is what concerns me about this it's a great boon for consumers.
There's so much that we can use this natural gas for.
But we need to start using it or start selling it or start exporting it before people start to stop drilling it has the prices so low right.
What we you have to be careful because that's where the bulls and natural gas have gotten themselves into a lot of trouble over the past three years.
Take years ago we -- -- -- that six dollars these -- was produces gas produces and produced.
And they load of the pot and they loaded to -- -- -- loaded I'd bring the problem is now Oriole -- trading at a fifty to sixty.

Well they are the producers can make money off of a -- different component of the screen that is at -- propane -- natural gas liquid.
They -- guests to guess that you and I used utter burner tip they are losing money on that part of the equation.

By the -- -- be earned elsewhere in other parts of the natural gas.
So they are making money -- you're losing it.
You know what would make no mistake about it -- we dollars they are losing money but when you've got oil trading at 505561.
Ratio to Nat gas.
That is more than compensating them for the part of the stream -- of these.
And knowing that cited seems -- starts out with a report -- seeing that natural gas prices won't rebound until 2013 even that might be optimistic.
