Yes, you are right, which is why I really like the idea of using natural gas/methane to create gasoline to replace (for the US) imported crude oil. Simple on the retail end. My caveats as always are in the details, and the financials are lacking and the relative net benefits form energy and pollution perspectives are thin too. Even if it doesn't pan out on the net pollution end from well to tailpipe to be an improvement, it might be worth it just from an energy security and balance of payments perspective for the US.
