The article reports on the disclosure of Joe Acker, president of the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association, that the U.S. Congress is not likely to produce any legislation in 2006 to ease high U.S. prices for natural gas. The energy issue has become so politicized on the Hill that no matter what is proposed in the way of easing pricing or boosting supply, it is certain to trigger strong objections from one side or the other.
