In the study, economic growth and natural gas consumption variables used for bound test approach in empirical analysis was different order of integration (I (0) and I (1)). The results show that the natural gas consumption positively impacts the economic growth of Turkey in the short-run and a negative relationship between the variables in long run. © Springer-Verlag 2010.
