Conservative gas

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is opposed to levying taxes on Marcellus Shell drilling in the state because oil companies will go elsewhere. Unless the gas itself has turned Tea Party on us, I suspect it's probably going to stay underground in Pennsylvania. If they want our gas, they're going to have to come here to get it.

Of course, the companies have this covered. A friend who owns property with a well says the agreement he signed with the driller calls for any taxes to be deducted from his royalty payments. In other words, the corporation doesn't pay the tax- the little guy does.

Well, at least they're screwing everyone equally.
