ast week, as the entire country was dealing with colder temperatures, total demand levels were volatile, ranging from 124-139 Bcf/d. This trend continued over the weekend, where total demand jumped by more than 8.0 Bcf/d to 133.5 Bcf/d. This jump in demand was mainly due increases in the Northeast and Midcon Market areas, which saw jumps of 3.6 and 3.9 Bcf/d, respectfully.
