New England effort to expand gas pipelines, transmission hits a snag

No one said it would be easy to expand the natural gas transmission system in New England. But there's near-universal agreement that it has to be done to ensure future electric reliability and prevent the kind of price spikes for power that occurred earlier this year during and after the polar vortex. The pending question is not just how to accomplish it, but how much consumers in the region -- who already face some of the nation's highest retail electricity prices -- will pay for the security of reliable electricity.
