Gas inventories are 38 percent below the average for the past five years, drained by last winter's heavy demands for the fuel and stagnant gas production.


Electricity customers will suffer, too, if severe heat waves strike this summer. More than 90 percent of the power plants built since the beginning of electricity deregulation in the late 1990s run on natural gas, and that is the primary fuel for producing peak power supplies when air-conditioning demand soars.
