Natural gas news from a hundred years ago offers great perspective for discussing one of the cleanest sources of energy available then and still today.
I thought it might be fun and illuminating to look back 100 years ago at what was happening with natural gas. It is eye opening, given all we’ve learned over the last century. There is, indeed, little new under the sun, as our stories repeatedly demonstrate. Read our 100-year old news items on the subjects of alternatives to gasoline, California gas appliances and kerosene competition below.
Natural Gas the Alternative to Gasoline Before EVs!
Today, EVs are the politically correct, but otherwise stupid, alternative to gasoline being proposed by demagogic politicians and special interests, but back in the day it was natural gas that was correctly perceived as the best choice.
So, how did it work? We’ll have to ask our auto correspondent, Bob Tomaine.

Yes, natural gas ranges and radiant heaters for the home were also being promoted in 1922 and this was California!
How things have changed as California communities now outlaw gas appliances in new homes under the mistaken idea that electricity won’t be made with it. The global warming scam, bought into by useful idiots who don’t grasp how they are being used for green grifting, has led to a bizarre world of foolishness where we have to back a century to find common sense.
Meanwhile, Standard Oil Was Trying Fight Natural Gas with Kerosene
The Rockefellers weren’t fans of competitive natural gas, it seems. Anyone surprised?
The competition among fossil fuels is clearly nothing new!
