These big compressor problems, along with natural gas pipelines, have much to do with the fact that nat gas inventories in the U.S. are running some 23% behind last year at this time. (In Canada, it's even worse, 43%--and they export much gas to our Northern States.) Should be a real interesting summer cooling season coming up.

And, the propane situation is even worse. This industry is running 48% behind last year in its inventories.

BUT , be assured , one and all ..... These problems are NOT caused by microchip pressure sensors in their thousands of miles of pipelines . After all , there was " NO PROBLEM " ( that couldn't be FOFed .. fixed on failure ) .

Well , NOW it's time to fix the " nonexisting " problems ; just like at the gas pumps . Ho-hum ! Time for another beer for Joe Sixpack , while he watches ' As The Stomach Turns ' . Eagle
