WGBH: CEEPR's Knittel Explains Energy Price Fluctuations

on Wednesday November 12, 2014

Interviewed on WBGH radio on 12 November 2014, CEEPR Director and William Barton Rogers Professor of Energy Economics Christopher Knittel described why energy prices in the Commonwealth are fluctuating, with rising electricity and falling gasoline prices. “When it gets cold in the Northeast, many people use more natural gas for heating… That means there’s less natural gas left for electricity generators, so they have to turn to more expensive ways to generate electricity,” Knittel explained. Professor Knittel’s interview can be accessed here.
