@Hailey - I think the 'Made in USA' label does have some clout. Unfortunately, it is all to difficult to find that option. I can tell you that, when it come to food products, I find it extremely important.

@Ariella, quite agree there are many people in US who would like to buy products made in US. Although its hard to find those kind of products.

@SP and Ariella, the Made in USA label has some clout, but i think that there's a new generation of customers who are going to have to be educated in this respect. I think the younger generation is much more globally minded.

@Flyingscott, i hope so too...but by all accounts it seems not. I am in California, which is perhaps more forward thinking than other parts of the country, but wind, solar, and other alternatives are always being considered...and i see new and large installations all the time.

"The more shale gas that's used in the transportation and logistics industry, the more chances there are for overall transportation costs to drop, which will make the cost-sensitive supply chain professional smile."

Sp, various states and federal government are trying for that, but whether companies are willing for such migration?

Jennifer, in certain countries, petroleum and gasoline are selling through the well connected pipe line networks. Shale also can think about migrating the conventional method of transportation to pipe lines and hence cost can be reduced.

It would be great if an ample supply of energy would encourage a resurgence in domenstic manufacturing. Among other things, we need to support and retain the manufacturing skill base.

Inexpensive, abundant energy definitely helps to fuel the economy. It also provides raw materials for various chemical industry products. Some time ago, I remember reading that some of the small percentage constituents of the raw natural gas can be separated out and purified for consumption in the chemical supply sector - I think that included products such as helium.

@SP I agree. There is also marketing value in being able to say "Made in the USA." Some buyers willingly spend more to support the workers in their country and to obtain what they believe is a better quality products.

Its a good move to get back manufacturing to US. Although finicancially it works or not time will tell. But definitely from quality point of view and national pride its good.
