- Average wholesale electricity prices remained below $50/MWh for most of the country for most of September, though prices exceeded $60/MWh at the beginning of the month in ERCOT, PJM, and NYISO.
- After reaching a low of $2.03 / MMBtu in April 2012, the price of Henry Hub natural gas has increased by over 46 percent to $2.96 / MMBtu in September 2012.
