Analysis Paper 1During this winter the price of natural gas has gone through the roof. ... In the short run the supply of natural gas is very inelastic because they cannot just produce more gas. They would need to get more rigs and find more natural gas then drill for it. ... In the long run the market for natural gas is more elastic because of the ability to get more gas and add to their capital. ... This has caused an increase in the demand for natural gas. ...

The increase in price is largely due to the reduction of natural gas supplied.In the short run, supply and demand for natural gas is relatively inelastic. The supply is inelastic because the quantity of known natural gas reserves and the capacity for natural gas extraction can not be changed in a short amount of time. ... To do so, the price of the natural gas must be cut. ... The producers of gas are responding to high prices by causing an increase in natural gas exploration. ... When the natural gas companies decided to reduce their production of natural gas, they shifted the supply curv...

Methane is the major component of natural gas, which is used in heating, cooling, production of electricity, and many other uses such as the reforming process to manufacture fertilizer.Natural gas is found by drilling into the earth's crust where pockets were trapped thousands of years ago. ... The removal of these impurities occurs in what is known as the Gas Processing Industry using various techniques to produce what we know as Natural Gas. The final product is transported throughout the country using large pipelines to large industry, small businesses, and residential customers.Init...

Cause and Effects on Today's Rising Gas Prices Natural gas is not a renewable resource, since there is a fixed amount of it trapped in the Earth. However, many people carry the misconception that there is a very limited amount of natural gas, and that we may use all of it up. ... People are often confused by the difference in "proved reserves", those that could be economically produced with the current technology, and the total natural gas resource base. Natural Gas Week (see note)I am presenting an informal study on the cause and effects of today's rising gas prices. ... Natural ...
