Trying to forecast electricity prices? Mike Stoller, program manager for the ABO Energy Marketplace offers this perspective: Natural Gas is the predominant fuel that drives electricity prices, and after a precipitous drop we saw a 10 year low in April of 2012, where the price of NG stood at about $2.20. As of Dec 20th, 2012, the price of NG sits at $3.45, a rise of about 50%. With that being said, we are still at exceptional levels in terms of locking in fixed pricing. NG was above $13 as recently as 2008, and was above $5.60 at the end of 2009, so clearly the risk to the upside greatly outweighs the risk to the downside.
