Energy Expert in Radio Report on Natural Gas Demand

A Maine Public Broadcasting Radio report on the increasing demand for natural gas included comments from Richard Hill, a UMaine professor emeritus of engineering. Hill said one of the reasons people have a long wait for natural gas hookups is that the construction of highways has led to a more spread-out, rather that cluster-based, lifestyle. It will make natural gas delivery particularly hard for rural areas such as northern Maine, Hill added, where people generally do not live in clusters.
