Through his work with Wood Mackenzie, Harold York handles research and client communications in the energy market. Offering his expertise on a number of topics, Harold York served as an expert witness regarding a natural gas pipeline in Latin America. Natural gas is an efficient, low-cost source of energy available in many regions. It's also a source of energy that regularly makes headlines. A February report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration puts supplies of natural gas higher than what analysts predicted. Despite many areas dealing with colder than normal temperatures, this news helped the price of natural gas drop by more than one percent. The U.S. Energy Information Administration places the cost of one million BTUs of heat at just over $11 for natural gas. Compared to oil ($28), propane ($29), and electricity ($35), consumers receive a lot more heat for their dollar. This makes natural gas one of the most affordable fuels for heating a home.
