Total Demand

We estimate that aggregate demand for American natural gas (consumption + exports) totaled around 556 bcf for the week ending May 24 (down 1.3% w-o-w but up 6.5% y-o-y). The deviation from the norm remained positive, but increased only slightly from +16.8% to +17.6% (see the chart below).

Overall, total energy demand (measured in total degree-days) should be above last year's level by around 13.0%.
