NGSA President Skip Horvath looks for solutions to sky-high natural gas prices

Natural gas prices hit record highs this week, trading upward of $14 per million British thermal units on the New York Mercantile Exchange. As a result, federal officials and industry analysts say consumers will face expensive home heating bills this winter. Skip Horvath, president of the Natural Gas Supply Association, weighs in on whether the White House or Congress can do anything about the high prices. He also explains why lawmakers should pass legislation that would allow states to opt out of an offshore drilling ban and get more supplies to the market.
