The article focuses on the U.S. policy of developing and consuming natural resources of other countries. It informs that this policy allows the U.S. to give other countries money with which they buy U.S. goods and services, and the U.S. uses foreign natural resources and keeps its own natural resources intact. It reports that large multinational companies balance the government policy by independently manipulating the prices of natural gas thus allowing the U.S. to have high standard of living.
