Tuesday News Round-up

It's a Gas Gas Gas: In true rockstar fashion, Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon rolled out the first ever natural gas-powered chopper, which was built by the Teutels of Orange County Choppers fame.   McClendon said, "all of us already know that American natural gas is the best answer to our future transportation needs."  He might want to check with Centerpoint CEO David McClanhan who said at the Clinton School of Public Service on Friday that he did not believe natural gas would solve modern transportation needs.  The costs to build the infrastructure are simply too high.  Gas would be a more likely solution, as even T. Boone Pickens has admitted, for fleets and commercial vehicles, he said.     

Fingers Crossed: Northwest Arkansas Electric Cooperative is predicting lower energy prices this summer due to low prices for natural gas and coal.  The co-op was quick to point out, however, that this could change any time given the unstable economic situation.

The Great Outdoors: Are you an outdoorsy-type person?  Would you like to meet other outdoorsy-type people?  Then head over to the monthly meeting of the Central Arkansas Ozark Society tonight at 7 p.m.  GreenAR by the Day has more.
