"Implementation of this budget proposal would mean a significant loss of jobs and a dramatic loss of tax revenues for each of the 35 states where our members are productive, contributing businesses. Plus, the resulting decrease in oil production will serve only to make America even more dependent upon foreign oil."

So far the gas market has absorbed the impact of the relatively cold winter without any significant impact on the curve, with summer 10 ...
