EIA begins posting daily energy prices
Originally published February 8, 2013
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has begun posting daily a set of key energy commodity spot and futures prices on its Today in Energy webpage. The agency is posting prices for wholesale petroleum products, energy futures (including heating oil, natural gas and coal) and select spot prices for natural gas and electricity to be delivered that day. The prices "provide a daily snapshot of energy markets in the United States," EIA said. The information will typically be updated between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. each weekday (excluding federal holidays), the agency said.
EIA lists spot prices for electricity and natural gas by region and shows percentage changes and the spark spread (the difference between the price received by a generator for electricity produced and the cost of the natural gas needed to produce that electricity). The spot prices are from SNL Energy and republished by EIA with permission.
