New Englanders are contending with some of the highest electricity rates in the country this winter as they weather the transatlantic ripple effects of a global gas crunch.
Residents of New England’s six states have thus far enjoyed a relatively mild winter without rolling blackouts. But skyrocketing rates — fueled by natural gas price surges and the war in Ukraine — are taking a toll on a region accustomed to cranking up the heat.

I would have thought they would be celebrating? The majority there are global warming believers and believe cheap energy is wrong among other items in their believe structure.
It's OK if you and your Family Freeze, it's for Ukraine.
New Englanders have it coming as voting wrong has consequences, don’t have a sad bone in my body for them. Hope it triples on them.
While sitting on the largest known gas field...in the world!
Actually the largest known reserves in the Western Hemisphere
My mistake. I stand corrected.
Sky-high electricity rates as Biden squeezes gas supply.
Fact check completed
US Natural Gas futures prices are really low. They are in the $3.00 range while in 2022 they were up to the $9.00 range. I think games are being played.
Lack of domestic gas pipelines.
Gee, if only we had an ample supply here in the USA. We could then tap our own nat gas and build out a network of pipelines to delivery it cheaply to the home. What a concept!
They all voted for the shit sandwhich and want everyone else to take a bite.
LOL...the New Englanders deserve exactly what they get. Those states (and a few others) are sitting on top of one of the biggest reserves of frackable natural gas in the US. But they have absolutely and adamantly refused to allow it to be developed. I hope they enjoy freezing in the dark...
F’n Hill, yeah it’s because of the Ukraine war.
Using your criterion, then the ENTIRE nation deserves whatever it gets because it voted for the POTATUS.
Who wants to invest in something that is hassled and prohibited by the politicians in charge? If it effectively cannot be produced, cannot be transported if produced, cannot be sold if transported....how do you get your mpney back?
I’m no expert. But prices are low for any product that has no way to make money.
(I’ll sell you the Brookly bride real cheap.)
Isn’t it great what the Dems have given the American taxpayers.
New England VOTED for the people who empowered the Neocons to start the Ukraine War, so they might as well sacrifice a bit.
