More and more electric generating power plants are switching from traditional coal fired to “abundant” natural gas. The switch has been the result of natural gas drilling and fracking in the Marcellus Shale Region and elsewhere. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette has explored the issue in an interesting article found on it web site. The author looks at New England last winter and a hugh spike in natural gas prices caused by cold temperatures and natural gas usage for heating and electrical power. The article is worth the read in delving into the complex market place of natural gas, especially in the Northeast.
