Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, has a lot of her own money invested in natural gas, with a focus of it being used in automobiles. I don't think much of her politics but on this I think she has the right idea. If the Democrats win in November you can count on there being a natural gas push for use in all kinds of vehicles with California being the test bed for CNG fuel stations. Southwestern Energy Company knows CNG inside and out. I believe they will be on the forefront of this transition.

I agree that SWN is a good pick and have plenty shares primarily due to an brown dense oil play in South Ark in which they have over 500K acres leased. The Demo's still do not get the concept of cheap natural gas though. They let the evironMENTALISTS ruin smart business by limiting fracing, windfall taxes, and preventing pipelines to be built (i.e. the Keystone PL). The enviro crowd puts allot of pressure especially on the Demo's who have wasted billions on poor business models like solar and wind energy projects. It will take several years for CNG to really gain acceptance and for infrastructure to be built.
