NEI Energy Markets Report (February 5th - 9th)

Here's a summary of what went on in the energy markets last week:

Electricity prices were mixed to decreasing throughout the country last week (see pages 1 & 2). Gas prices rose at the Henry Hub $0.73 to $8.26 / MMBtu (see page 4).

Nuclear plant capacity availability was 96% last week as three reactors were down for maintenance and two reactors were down for refueling outages (see pages 2 & 3).

The unseasonably warm temperatures in the United States and throughout most of the northern hemisphere through early January reduced the demand for heating
fuels, leading to an easing of petroleum and natural gas prices (see page 8).
