Beginning in 2007, Sacramento Natural Gas Storage (SNGS) proposed to store 8 billion cubic feet of natural gas beneath 700 neighborhood homes of Avondale-Glen Elder in South Sacramento.

What followed was a landmark decision that caused Sacramento City Council member, Kevin McCarty, to describe as a case similar to "David vs. Goliath."

Walking On Gas serves as an investigative resource examining the proposal by Sacramento Natural Gas Storage (SNGS), a private company, seeking the right to store gas beneath Avondale-Glen Elder. This isolated incident has national implications where a private company sought the right to seize and use the land via eminent domain, a right historically only granted to public sectors until recent times.
