Gas shortage? What shortage?

THE Melbourne Energy Institute has released a new report claiming NSW actually faces falling gas demand and a doubling or tripling of electricity prices – which is actually a front for Left-leaning think tank The Australia Institute to push for the state to be powered by renewables.

The MEI's report, titled The dash from gas. Could demand in NSW fall to half?, forecasts NSW gas demand to potentially halve within a decade to question the need for gas infrastructure investments.
