March Madness: Heating Demand Spikes, Gas Prices Stay Flat
March 12, 2019
Looking at data from November to the present, this winter now stands 12% above the 10-year average in U.S. Heating Degree Days (HDDs). NOAA data for the week ending March 9 shows that period to be the coldest yet relative to historic norms as it came in 63% above normal in population-weighted HDDs. Only the weeks ending January 26 and February 2 have produced more total HDDs.
