Abstract: As always, its a pleasure to attend the annual distribution conference and to have an opportunity to share some thoughts with you on where our industry has come from, where it is today, and where we are going-with emphasis on today, for thats where the action is. I say this is an opportunity for this audience because you men and women serve the entire industry on its cutting edge-where the product meets the public. And where the heat is when things go awry. The gas industry really has gone through three periods. Right after World War II we saw a lot of gas discovered in the exploration for oil. That gas was cheap and we had no trouble at all in selling it. Literally, we were order takers. It was in this period that we built the image of gas as efficient, convenient, dependable, and cheap. We retain three of those four attributes today, and they can serve us well as we seek a workable solution to the pricing problems we face today.
