“The U.S. uses 60 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.” and

“If we stack the cubic feet of natural gas on top of each other we’d go to the moon and back 25 times every day.”

The moon is on average 238,857 miles away. Which is 1,261,164,960 feet. One and a quarter billion! The “moon and back” is therefore around tow and a half billion feet. Times 25? Sixty-two and a half billion. How is sixty million feet (the height of one cubic foot of gas being one foot in height) anything like sixty-two billion??? Who wrote this?

Even a bit of proof reading would alert you to the fact that the moon is patently not sixty million feet away, let alone 60,000/2 (there and back) /25 (times each day) = 1,200,000 feet away.

And if you didn’t mean that, then once again – proof read before you post. BTW – do you not have editors??? Can they not proof read either?
