http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/business/columnists/13036127.htmPricey gas has a silver liningBy MITCHELL SCHNURMANStar-Telegram Staff WriterIt's natural to complain about high energy prices, especially after Exxon Mobil posted nearly $10 billion in quarterly profit last week. Even the top-ranking Republican senator called for public hearings on oil, while others urged a replay of the windfall-profits tax.Tarrant County should shudder at the thought. Companies are investing billions of dollars here to extract natural gas, and we don't need government spoiling the party.Many people will say: "So what? Haven't they made enough already?"Enough profits maybe, but not enough gas. And isn't that what we should focus on -- increasing the supply of these limited resources?
