Where's The Growth?

*Natural Gas prices keep going up, demonstrating that demand is probably outpacing supply.* Yet, over the last few years, the last of our manufacturing industries have been leaving the US, like rats leaving a sinking ship.

Correction... I've been informed that Natural Gas prices have spiked and then dropped again. Thanks Bill. But that's for spot prices, consumer prices appear to be on the rise.
Richard Duncan and others have sounded the warning that by 2008, North American Natural Gas production will be in a steep decline.

The naysayers argue we have plenty of Natural Gas in stranded fields, like the one in a Fort Worth Texas suburb that exploded, leading to very exciting emergency council meetings.

If stranded fields coupled with frenzied drilling, is going to lead to decades of growth in production, when will it happen?
