Summary:
IHS vice chairman Daniel Yergin tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that gas prices could drop by as much as 8 cents per gallon if the United States lifts its crude oil export ban. A report by the energy research group says lifting the ban from 2016 through 2030 would trigger jobs growth by as much as nearly 1 million at its peak and collect a combined $1.3 trillion in government revenue. Yergin also tells TheStreet which participants won't stand to benefit from lifting the restriction and explains why he expects U.S. energy policy to shift in the Obama administration and in Congress.

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

Possible Natural Gas Squeeze in Europe Won't Hurt U.S. Prices

TheStreet (May 14, 2014) — While threats by Russia's Gazprom -- a majority state-controlled natural gas extractor -- to cut gas deliveries to Ukraine rise, American investors should know such action won't hurt prices in the United States. GFI Group senior energy derivative trader Elliot Warren tells TheStreet's Joe Deaux that traders aren't worried about U.S. prices because we can't export natural gas abroad and we can't make up for a European supply problem. Warren, speaking about the recent trade in natural gas, says prices have dipped back down to $4 after spiking during the winter. Warren says natural gas inventories will build during the summer, which will suppress price increases. Video provided by TheStreet

U.S. Predicts Lower Heating Bills This Winter Due to Weather

U.S. Predicts Lower Heating Bills This Winter Due to Weather

TheStreet (Oct. 7, 2014) — Cooler temperatures should cut heating bills this winter, as few expect the same harsh weather that chilled much of the nation last year. Low temperatures across the Midwest, South and East forced people to use more heat last winter and the price of some fuels soared because of shortages. This year everyone is likely to get a little break on their bills from the weather, and some residents will see substantial price declines too. Heating oil prices are the lowest they've been in four years, and propane prices have fallen far from their peaks last winter. Prices for natural gas and electricity should be higher this winter. But the combined 88% of U.S. households that rely on them for heat should still see lower bills because of lower demand, assuming the weather cooperates. Video provided by TheStreet

Gasoline Price Outlook: Good For Refiners, Bad For Drivers

Gasoline Price Outlook: Good For Refiners, Bad For Drivers

TheStreet (Apr. 30, 2014) — Energy expert Dan Dicker talks with TheStreet's Jim Cramer about his outlook for gasoline prices this summer and for the refiners that produce it. Continued strong global gas prices are being met with relatively weak domestic crude prices. Dicker explains why this is good for the refiners, but bad for U.S. drivers. Add that to a tough winter and gas stations that are changing their model for selling gas, and you’ve got a bad summer in store for driving. Video provided by TheStreet

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

End of Crude Oil Export Ban Means the End of the Game for Refiners

TheStreet (July 2, 2014) — Dan Dicker, energy contributor at RealMoney, talks to Jim Cramer about the Commerce Department's recent decision to allow the reclassification of condensates as a refined product, in effect ending a 40-year old ban on the export of domestically produced crude oil. This will expand the business of distilling crude oil for export overseas, benefiting U.S. exploration and production companies and some transport MLPs. The losers will be the U.S. refiners, who will see the end of the price advantage they have enjoyed for the last 4 years. Dicker says he would not own any of them right now.
