Well I hope this discussion is not being about more Regs and rules to manage our properties. It Cost me plenty to remove the prior oil guy and no one ponied up to help pay that.

  When I look over the fence at the gasoline refiner's lawn it seems much greener than mine.

  A quick online check showed oil, in June, at 105 per barrel, and gasoline, in June, at 3.68 per gallon.

  A look at the top of this site shows oil at 52.00 per barrel, but the price for gas today in Orwell is 2.27 per gallon. The price per barrel of oil today is roughly 1/2 of what it was in June. One might think the price of gasoline would follow and be roughly 1.84 per gallon. I realize that not all of a refiner's cost fluctuate with the price of oil, and are fixed. I just believe they would be hard pressed to justify a 43 cent per gallon difference.

  Another example, when oil was 150.00 a barrel gas was 4.00 a gallon. Oil today is 1/3 of that price, but gas is not even close to 1.33 per gallon. If you work the numbers the opposite way and oil returns to 150 a barrel gas would be 6.81 per gallon. These are very rough numbers, but I think it shows we are getting the soiled end of the stick.

A link to another what I believe to be significant discussion on the General Forum pages.

Good luck to all.

A link to another post at the General Forum pages to what I think to be significant reading follows (go to page 3 once there to find pertinent commentary) :

Ashtabula County Utica development 'on hold' per politicos and as storied in the Star Beacon.
Article cites low oil prices, no takeaway systems in place yet, other infrastructure and earthquake concerns.
Oil industry in another linked article indicates development will continue / grow as development costs are falling and in spite of less dollars per barrel pricing.
Takeaway capacity is fixable if you ask me - develop R.O.W. agreements, lease and drop pipe.
Earthquakes are due to waste water injection wells as I've read - not fractured production wells; and that seems fixable to me also by going with Waterless / Gas Fracturing Production Wells where water / waste water disposal aren't even required.
So I think we all need to tell our politicians to step on the gas - prosperity is knocking on our doors.
