New Englanders Have Only Themselves to Blame for Energy Price Spikes
A blunt, provocative commentary on New England's energy challenges comes from William Murray, the federal energy policy manager for the nonprofit R Street Institute in Washington, D.C. In a telling factoid, Murray writes, "(T)he 50,000 miles of U.S. natural gas pipelines built during the past decade largely skipped New England, leaving the region with the highest electricity prices in the United States." What do you think? Is Murray on target with his critique of the region's "self-induced" problems and, if so, do you anticipate changes in New Englanders' "anti-infrastructure" mindset?
