In a new commentary, CGEP Scholar Katherine Spector outlines the role that gas storage plays in the North American winter, demonstrates how unusual the storage fundamentals look going into this coming season and why they support higher prices, and explains what might be unanticipated price spikes given the data.

Jason Bordoff and Sam Walsh discuss if oil markets should be on the lookout for an October surprise from Washington aimed at easing consumers’ pain at the pumps.
