Only in the 50's for highs and low 30's at night in Chicago area. If summer kicks in with above avg temps.......it will help. Look at what happened in Summer and Fall of 2012
Wow.....this is weird. I just posted Friday Song and I was debating between "with or Without You" (the one I posted) or "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".
I'm with you Oldfeller, he's out of control. I was gonna say, we should deport him...but he's already living in the Arctic. Where should we place him?
EIA projects that because of low prices and expected warmer-than-normal temperatures, average consumption of natural gas for power generation this summer will reach close to a record high of 26.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). The record for summer natural gas-fired power generation was set in 2012 , when consumption averaged 27.9 Bcf/d. This was largely because record-high natural gas inventories at the end of March (following a warm winter) contributed to prices in the $2 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) range, which were coupled with an unusually hot summerthat rised demand for gas-fired generation to provide air conditioning.
In addition, the Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS), the EPA rule mandating new environmental standards for coal-fired power plants, took effect on April 16. EIA expects 13 gigawatts (GW) of coal-fired generation capacity to retire this year, much of it occurring this month as MATS takes effect. Most scheduled capacity additions this year are either wind (9.8 GW) or natural gas (4.3 GW). Coal-fired generation capacity accounts for 81% of all planned retirements in 2015.
Together with continually declining number of rigs.....we may be in for a nice surprise (IMHO)!!!
Nice going Peteza, but you still have a while to go. BTW, I read that article somewhere. I wonder if that CEO really thinks it will go to 200.....GL.
"Omnipotent"..........that's stolen from TJ's dictionary. BTW, the Hoosier future edition is much more sophisticated.....it can tell you stock prices 3 months in advance, opposed to regular future edition which goes only 2 weeks in advance.
