The State of Affairs in Energy Futures
by Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker
In recent weeks, we’ve seen declines in global equity markets as well as in consumer and investor sentiment. We’re on the leading edge of a near 8-month rise in inflation to 40-yr. highs – rising at an equal 40-year record pace.
At the same time, some of the latest global inflation data has been inconclusive. Short-term inflation momentum which measures a three-month annualized rate as opposed to the pace of price increases in one month compared with the same month a year earlier (think CPI) have started to soften. The Commerce Department’s monthly personal-consumption expenditures report has shown consumers are shifting to a more-normal balance of spending on goods and services compared to the demand surge earlier in the Covid-19 pandemic.
Regardless of how conditions play out in the coming weeks and months, don’t count on energy prices
falling off any time soon. Nationally and globally, even if we experience an economic decline and energy demand subsides, the aftereffects will be slight. Both the supply and demand sides of the equation will account for stubbornly high prices both at the pump and in natural gas
. Strategic stockpiles are in need of replenishing, the expanding ban on Russian imports is only beginning to impact prices, structural adjustments to realign energy supply chains to accommodate for the war will take months or longer and seasonal summer demand is on the horizon.
