Gas Usage For Electricity Sets All-Time Record In July

The historic shift to gas to generate electricity plus summer heat and air conditioning demand combined to set an all-time record for the use of gas to make power in July 2012.  An incredible 35.3 billion cubic feet per day of gas fueled power plants around the nation during July or about 50% of all gas consumed, according to EIA.

If you cranked the air conditioning this summer, you were using gas and were part of its record use for the purpose of power generation.
