Winter will bring US residents checks for $ 750 for heating


Natural gas production in the United States mainly comes from two sources. The first is the classic wells drilled specifically for gas production. The resulting "blue fuel" accounts for about 60% of the total natural gas production in the United States.


The second source is oil wells. Associated gas is natural gas dissolved in crude oil. When oil is produced, the pressure drops and natural gas comes out. Sometimes they simply burn it, but more often they try to "catch" and sell it.

Last year, as you know, due to the rampant pandemic in the United States, the volume of oil production fell sharply, and, as a result, gas production.

The number of rigs dedicated to prospecting and producing natural gas also declined by about 45% between January and July 2020. As a result, as with crude oil, natural gas production has yet to recover. Meanwhile, the demand for "blue fuel" has already slightly exceeded the pre-pandemic level.

This imbalance in supply and demand has two important implications. One of them is the rise in natural gas prices. Now the prices for this energy carrier are almost 80% higher than a year ago. This is also partly the result of the second negative impact - the decline in natural gas reserves following a very harsh winter period.

Of course, not only the United States faced such a problem. Natural gas prices in Europe have increased fivefold, forcing some businesses to cut production. This strengthens the position of Russia, as it was able to sell additional volumes of fuel at a high cost. China also experienced a spike in prices that resulted in rolling blackouts in some cities.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA - an independent agency within the US federal statistical system) predicts that this winter, natural gas in the US will be supplied to consumers at the highest prices since 2005. According to the latest forecast from the Winter Fuels Outlook, for 48% of households in the United States, the average monthly heating bill will be $ 746 (52 thousand rubles), which is 30% more than last year.

If the coming winter turns out to be even colder than expected, there will be nothing to stop further price increases.

    So what's the problem? A call to Novatek - and the gas carrier flies to the USA like a white swan. At $ 2 per 500 cubic meters of gas.

    You don't even have to be scared. America is full of Santa Clauses who carry money in sacks. One has only to go to the Field of Miracles, there are a lot of them in the land of fools, bury the gold and say fex, brex, cupcake, as in the morning a tree appears covered with gold coins instead of leaves. USA wonderland brah in face.

      The most dumb fools continue to believe that endless printing of dollars can solve all problems.
      Soon these dollars will only be useful for kindling a potbelly stove.

    I don't think it will negatively affect the bourgeoisie if the average salary is almost $ 70000 a year (or 425000 rubles a month), and the US government also sends money to people for free, $ 1400 per person in 2021 and $ 1800 in 2020 due to Covid.

      Wikipedia is power good laughing By the way, there under your link 65,836 in 2019 it is written, did you rounded it slightly to heighten the effect? sad And yes, if 70000 divided by 12, you get 5833,3 or at the rate of 418518,86. You also downloaded the calculator on Wikipedia?
      Other sources are somewhat more modest in their estimates, at 53 per year. 490 per week is 1028 or at the rate for today 4112 rubles.
      https://www.jobted.com/salary


      And yes, as far as I'm aware, the salary is listed before taxes.
      But using this link, the handshake citizens brilliantly break the myths of the Watans and Kremlinbots, who say that half of them go to taxes and popularly explain with pictures that only a pitiful 25-30% smile
      https://pora-valit.livejournal.com/4277699.html
      So it turns out somewhere 200-220 tyrov. In general, read Wikipedia, gain wisdom yes
      And yes, salaries and incomes are a little different. Look through the wiki there about everything wink

    The tax in the US is much lower than in Russia, people who earn less than $ 20000 a year don't even pay taxes and actually get their money back from the government, and also if you earn $ 75000 a year or less, you get government aid. $ 1400 per person in 2021. , $ 1800 per person in 2020, the tax is 20% for those who earn $ 75000 a year, if you earn between $ 250000 and $ 500000 a year, the tax is 35%. but it varies from state to state and you have your marital status and the number of people you support (children), but on average it is 35%

    no, I didn't round it
    If I look closely, I see that the average salary in the United States is increasing by 2-3 thousand dollars annually, it is safe to assume that in 2021 it will be 70000 per year. drinks

    2017: 60,558
    2018: 64,397
    20193 65,836
    2020: ~ 67500
    2021: ~ 70000

      And you can find out what relation the so-called US GDP has to the real economy if:

      In the first quarter of 2021, U.S. GDP grew 6,3% year over year and 0,5% year over year. At the end of last year, the US economy declined by 3,4%. This decline in the world's largest economy has been the strongest since 1946 ...
