Representative Edward Markey (D-Mass.) sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu this week asking the secretary about the likely effects on domestic natural gas markets of exporting U.S. gas as LNG. According to Reuters, Rep. Markey’s letter underscores the concern that exporting natural gas may raise energy prices in the United States.
