Salt Lake City, UT – On October 1st, a moratorium blocking the development of US oil shale expired. Some 1.8 trillion barrels is thought to be concentrated in Utah, Colorado and Wyoming, but how to extract it - and if it's worth it - remain the questions. Tuesday on RadioWest, Doug talks to energy reporters about the politics, the technology and the impact of "squeezing oil from a stone."
