Bloomberg -- Cheniere Energy Inc. (LNG), the natural gas importer that lost $1.2 billion in a decade, is poised to become the sole U.S. exporter of fuel from the shale bonanza that’s turned the nation into the world’s biggest gas producer.

The government may decide as soon as next week on Cheniere’s request to build a $10 billion Louisiana plant that would be the largest in the U.S. to liquefy gas and load it onto ocean-going tankers. Regulators will discuss the project April 19. Cheniere’s shares rose as much as 11 percent in New York.

Here we go again. We're sitting on a bonanza of fuel, so we ship it away while our pump prices go up. I wish the industry would get serious about natural gas and start a committed effort to build the vehicles and infrastructure here in America.

It should do some good for the U.S. economy. So the U.S. exports natural gas and imports petroleum. Instead of selling it cheap to the rest of the world, how about making it more available within the U.S. and for low cost.
