EIA forecasts natural gas prices to remain near $4/MMBtu in 2022, slightly lower in 2023

14 January 2022, 1:00pm
In our January Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO), we forecast that the natural gas spot price at the U.S. benchmark Henry Hub will average $3.79 per million British thermal units (MMBtu) in 2022, slightly less than its 2021 average of $3.91/MMBtu.
