06:04 EDTNUE, DOW, X, MT, AKSCheap gas energizing parts of U.S. economy, WSJ reports
With natural gas suddenly plentiful and relatively cheap in the U.S. due to hydraulic fracturing technology, or fracking, U.S. manufacturing is beginning to pick up again, reports the Wall Street Journal. For example, back in 2004, steelmaker Nucor Corp. (NUE) bought a plant next to Louisiana wetlands, took it apart and shipped it to Trinidad on ocean barges because gas is cheap there.This summer, after almost two years of construction, it will open the same type of plant at the same site at a cost of $750M because natural gas, which is critical to these Nucor plants, is cheap here. Lower-priced natural gas has energized many parts of the country and the economy, including chemical and fertilizer companies, which say lower prices have reduced costs and made the U.S. a more competitive manufacturing location.
