Exporting natural gas would have two major advantages, it seems to me.
First, it would stabilize prices in the U.S. and around the world by integrating markets that are not connected.
Second, by creating more demand for U.S. produced gas and stabilizing prices it would encourage more exploration and production here. That is important because exploration has dropped off because of the currently low prices. We should export gas if we want to create the incentives that will result in production of more gas.
