Somerset —

The original natural gas pipeline to Eastern Kentucky has been profitable, providing transmission of natural gas out of previously landlocked wells. It has been a dependable source of natural gas and revenue for Somerset. 
Natural gas and the city-owned water company have made Somerset one of the most affluent cities in Kentucky. Girdler recently told the Somerset Kiwanis Club that Somerset has $20 million in the bank.
In addition to revenue, a dependable supply of natural gas has made shortages during brutally cold weather a thing of the distant past. Businesses and factories that used natural gas prior to the Eastern Kentucky pipeline were required to switch to alternate fuel sources during zero weather to conserve natural gas for home heating.
