You know how much money the oil companies have? If you need some gas, just go fill your tank off and drive off - they're not going to miss it.
The greatest asset, even in this country, is not oil and gas. It's integrity. Everyone is searching for it, asking, 'Who can I do business with that I can trust?'
Water is our most precious resource, but we waste it, just as we waste other resources, including oil and gas.
The good Lord put oil and gas there for us to find and use, and we'd better do it.
Working with my dad was such a gas. We approached the work in a similar way. We only made two films together when I was an adult, Tucker, and Blown Away, but it was so much fun to play with your parent like that.
Despite tantalizing suggestions of fossilized microbes in meteorites, puzzling and possibly biogenic methane gas in the martian atmosphere, and a long-standing controversy over the Viking lander experiments of nearly 40 years ago, there's still no Exhibit A that points unequivocally to biology in our own back yard.
The good Lord didn't see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all considered, one would not normally choose to go. But we go where the business is.
I honestly don't know, but if America continues to refuse to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, I see a bleak future not only for American society, but for the world as a whole. This is a global problem that is not going away, and the United States is an obstacle to solving it.
The cheapest natural gas in the world is in the United States.

Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn't tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly.
Neon signs don't consume much power, but they look like they do. A cousin of fluorescent lighting, neon is actually quite energy efficient. A neon tube glows coolly when high-voltage, low-amperage electrical power excites the gas within it.

The prices are ridiculous... I don't see how people can go back and forth to work or to school. How can we afford the gas?
When you put gas in your car you are making a political statement, because you are supporting the empires that control and continue the destruction of some countries.
I don't care whether you use natural gas, ethanol, the battery. You can use anything, just so it's American.
T. Boone Pickens
If you don't have the story and the unfolding of the trajectory of the saga, it's like getting in a car and not having any gas.
Gus Van Sant
Pesticides came about after the first world war. Some brainy petrochemical money maker said, 'Hey, that mustard gas worked great on people, maybe we could dilute it down and spray it on our crops to deal with pests.'
The natural gas industry has worked long and hard to smear Josh Fox, the director of 'Gasland,' and has failed.

Mark Ruffalo, aka the Incredible Hulk, is the natural gas industry's worst nightmare: a serious, committed activist who is determined to use his star power as a superhero in the hottest movie of the moment to draw attention the environmental and public health risks of fracking.
