The February issue of the NGM, featuring data for December 2010, is now available. Natural gas consumption in the United States totaled 2,725 billion cubic feet (Bcf) for the month, up 757 Bcf (38.5 percent) from November 2010 and 241 Bcf (9.7 percent) above the year-ago level. The increase was primarily driven by colder than normal temperatures in many regions of the country, as natural gas home customer-weighted heating degree days were 8 percent above the historical December average for the lower 48 States. For the year, the preliminary domestic natural gas consumption estimate was a record-high 24,134 Bcf, an increase of 1,295 Bcf (5.7 percent) over the 2009 total.
