S. measurement of a barrel of oil, 42 gallons, originates from oil fields in Pennsylvania, when oil companies stored petroleum in whiskey barrels. S. petroleum consumption is used for transportation. In 2009, petroleum fuel was the single largest source of energy in the United States, with 18,690,000 barrels per day providing 37 percent of energy The Political Economy of Natural Gas (Croom Helm Commodity Series). As a result, petroleum product prices increased sharply as supplies to the market dropped. Severely cold weather can strain product markets as producers attempt to supply enough of the product, such as heating oil, to consumers in a short amount of time, resulting in higher prices. Other events such as refinery outages or pipeline problems can restrict the flow of oil and products, driving up prices Natural Gas Markets After Deregulation: Methods of Analysis and Research Needs (Routledge Revivals).

These lower prices create incentives for wider use of natural gas in other industries. For example, several reports by government, industry, and others have observed that if natural gas prices remain low, natural gas is more likely to be used to power cars and trucks in the future.

The difference between average annual prices per million Btu for natural gas and coal delivered to U. S. electric power plants narrowed substantially in 2012, so that the fuel costs of generating power from NGCC [natural gas combined cycle] units and coal steam turbines per megawatthour were essentially equal on a national average basis (Figure 26), given that combined-cycle plants are much more efficient than coal-fired plants. … Because fuel prices vary by region, and because there is also considerable variation in efficiencies across the existing fleet of both coal-fired and combined-cycle plants, dispatch-level competition between coal and natural gas continues OPEC: Instrument of Change.

[146] In its 2010 annual report Peabody notes that the New York Office of the Attorney General Subpoena wrote to Peabody on June 14, 2007 and referred to the company's "plans to build new coal-fired electric generating units," and stated that the "increase in CO2 emissions from the operation of these units, in combination with Peabody Energy's other coal-fired power plants, will subject Peabody Energy to increased financial, regulatory, and litigation risks."
