Converting natural gas into petrol

Drive story here

Labor said the growing oil shock should prompt the Government to invest in technology to transform natural gas from Australia's abundant reserves into liquid transport fuel
Interesting.. Why should we invest in converting natural gas to liquid fuels when LPG does the job better and cheaper, we have huge reserves of that and it would cost the petrol companies less than 5 cents a litre to sell it over the forcourt at your local servo.

Does labour have some sort of investment in this technology like the liberals had in the ethanol conversion scheme.

Seems like a arsed way of doing things..
