The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has issued its Winter 2012-2013 Energy Market Assessment. The introduction: "The U.S. natural gas market is well supplied, with production at almost forty-year highs and inventories approaching last year’s record. This should help keep natural gas prices relatively low into the winter assuming normal winter weather, and also help moderate electric prices. Low natural gas prices for most of 2012 resulted in high usage of natural gas to generate electricity, and staff expects power burn to remain high into the winter. High power burn, coupled with high seasonal natural gas demand from residential and commercial customers, could lead to higher than usual winter peak demand. This may in turn cause congestion on some pipelines in the Northeast which could lead to higher than expected prices."
