Long term, coal isn't a good option as an energy source. But the competition between coal and natural gas is what matters now.
It's often cheaper to burn off the natural gas than it is to sell it.
With challenges from environmental groups and state governments, the idea of natural gas as a bridge fuel may be fading.
Dominion Energy also just announced it's giving up on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline joint project with Duke Energy.
Pennsylvania's natural gas industry hopes the plant can bring a lifeline to a sector beleaguered by overproduction.
The bridge keeps getting longer, with utilities and energy companies adding hundreds of gas plants around the country.
Natural gas companies are struggling, in large part because the prices they’re selling at are so low.
