Strong Nuclear Power Output Offsetting Natural Gas Demand

With all but one nuclear reactor generating near 100% today, output is surpassing last year for the tenth day in a row, averaging nearly 1/2 BCF of natural gas demand offset.  This differential should shrink over the next two months, since output cannot improve much from here.  The nuclear fleet is performing near perfectly, and barring unplanned outages should help suppress natural gas demand this summer.
