The Cheapest Fuel!
Well, the headline says it all, doesn’t it?
Yes, and it’s cheaper than solar and wind as well, those sources of energy still requiring massive subsidies after years of the same.
Just $100 Buy Opportunity!
Natural gas fields plus $100 and you’re off and running!
Well opportunity does around in natural gas fields, doesn’t it?
It’s the Value, Stupid!

Montana was on the mind of all sorts of oil and gas companies in 1923.
Every state with oil and gases proud of it in 1923.
