The first day of the snowstorm, last Thursday, set a record for use of natural gas in the region. Besides being used to heat homes and business, natural gas is also used to generate elecrtricity.
The director of gas supplies for Northwest Natural, Randy Friedman, says America has at least a 100 year supply of natural gas. He says the region has an adequate supply of pipelines to transport the gas here. Friedman says, as the region grows, it will need more lines.
