The article examines on the impact of using the domestic natural gas compared of using the liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the economy of the U.S. The cost of LNG is very attractive, whereas some of the domestic supplies can be very expensive. According to liberal Democrat Neil Abercrombie from the state of Hawaii, the increased LNG imports pose both an energy security and national security threat while representative John Peterson declares that the price and availability of natural gas is a greater concern to America's economic future than global warming or terrorism. On the other hand, Cheniere Marketing president Keith Meyer firmly rejects the notion that increased LNG imports will mean higher prices because of a need to outbid countries that will take natural gas at virtually any price.
