Oil to Natural Gas Price Ratio

Lots of discussion with a few members of the commentariat at Calculated Risk regarding the extreme nature of the price ratio between oil and natural gas so I decided to hunt up some data and see just what we were talking about.

The price behavior on a linear plot over the same time.

...and on a log plot due to the disparity of oil and gas when displayed on a common axis.
