I'm from Louisiana where oil and natural gas are strong geologic features. I remember growing up in the 40s and 50s seeing bright spots scattered in the sky at night from natural gas being flared into the air at the oil wells. Back then, there wasn't enough demand for natural gas to bother building the pipelines. It was considered a nuisance that had to be put up with in order to get the oil. Lots of things change with time; some for the better.
