The U.S. is currently flooded every day with over 3 billion cubic feet of gas. Discoveries of new reserves and new drilling processes have led to a massive oversupply. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration over the past year inventories of natural gas have risen over 56 percent. The market is overflowing with so much gas that many analysts are predicting that by autumn of this year there will be no place left to store the commodity in the entire U.S. "I cannot in my memory recall a time like this, when we have created a surplus that may be beyond our capacity to store," said Charles Maxwell, an energy analyst at Weeden & Co. with 45 years of experience.
