Fuel Fix reports that “cheap, abundant U.S. shale gas soon will find its way to a new market: The flood of people moving from the countryside to the dense cities of developing countries.”  

“In a few years, the gas will arrive in China, India and Latin America as resin pellets that will become plastic products like food packaging, a key component for urbanizing populations as consumers trade farming markets for preserved foods.”  

“It’s a huge, hungry market.”
