Mr. BURR. Mr. President, let me say to my colleagues, what this simply does is to take something that is happening naturally--a transition from diesel, in most cases, over to natural gas--and it accelerates it. It gives it a 5-hour energy drink. We should take this opportunity to accelerate it as fast as we can. It is paid for, as Senator Menendez said.

This is essential if we want natural gas prices to stay down--increase demand. If not, we are going to shut in wells, we are going to find ways to sell it offshore.

If we want to keep historically low natural gas prices, then let's increase demand so production increases and we can take advantage of all these finds we have all over the United States of America.
