Thank you for the sad news, Cal, but I'm not surprised. In addition, fracking pollutes our water and air. It must be banned.
P.S. I'm able to post, but I'm able to get messages, but unable to respond or earn credits for comments. I'm heartbroken. Although in the scheme of life, I guess I need to keep things in perspective. I hope I'm able to note articles, but I don't know.

Why is it big companies get away with these things Its the same world over i think yet if an ordinary person or small business does not pay their right amount of tax and on time they will end up fined or behind bars Talk about the rich get richer!

Oil and Gas companies need to lower their prices, and give everyone a refund check for price gouging! The also need to pay their fair share to the government. So down with rebuplican cronyism.

Sadly the whole idea behind the (G) & (O), (P), is that the rich get rich, & the poor get poorer. You do the work, and they get the profit. I think is this case, it could safely be said, we've been fracked twice.
Noted & shared.

Chesapeake Energy your company is scum! This is a case of price gouging when you take 90% after the 1st cheque. Are there no caring people running Big Companies,,,the thing that gets to me most is that these money
grubbers can't take it with them when they go, and to leave it to kids or relatives is ridiculous as they wouldn't know where to begin to look after any free money.............sometimes I have a hard time keeping faith in humanity

Noted. Thanks for this info, Cal. Yes, thievery is despicable. If it isn't bad enough that they take over your land and poison it for generations, as well as surrounding land. Then they just steal the profits and jack up the prices as they sell the finished product. I'd really hoped Obama would help the situation, and am extremely disappointed in him. If the TPP passes, this will all get even worse.....

"It may just be part of their business decision to do it this way."
It is. The gas industry plays the percentages and the law of averages is in their favor; the make more with their cheating than they lose in the courts.

Above, John S. says skimming isn't the right word for what the oil and gas companies are doing. In the financial sense, no, they aren't skimming off our profits. But they are skimming off the life-blood of this planet's ecology--with politicians as willing collaborators! It needs to stop!
