Our American cousins will be keeping cool during the long hot summer using air conditioning powered by natural gas.
In fact they are predicted to use a record amount of 3.8 million megawatt hours. This is up 4% on last year.
For every one degree Fahrenheit increase above 65 degrees, it is predicted that an extra 140,000 MWh of natural gas-fired electricity and an additional 1.4 billion cubic feet of natural gas will be consumed each day.
Natural gas had long been the second-most common source of electricity in the US, until it overtook coal last April.
It is estimated that natural gas will provide 34% of electricity in the US this year, with coal expected to provide 30%, nuclear to provide 19% and renewables to provide 15%.
