This summer was the hottest on record. How do you think that affects demand for natural gas?
You might think that people would do less heating, and maybe even less cooking when it's so hot, but your home use of natural gas is a very small part of total demand for gas. Most gas is burned by electricity-producing plants, and people needed that electricity this past summer to run their AC's.
It took me a little while to get used to looking at business reports like these as interesting and important, but we can learn a lot here! You try: so who benefits from a hot summer?
