ABSTRACT
The article examines the possibility of gas rationing in the U.S., caused by the tight natural gas supply/demand balance in the country. Paul Ciceo of the Industrial Energy Consumers of America (IECA) thinks that rationing is unlikely, even as demand grows and supply remains. Joe Benneche of the U.S. Department of Energy notes that the high cost of gas may drive more electric utilities back to coal as generating fuel, perhaps easing gas demand further.
