A preliminary report commissioned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts suggests energy costs in that state will increase without expanding natural gas supplies, which have been constrained by pipeline capacity limitations. Natural gas advocates heralded the report, but opponents of expanding the pipeline infrastructure say it is too geographically limited to Massachusetts to influence a regional conversation on the subject. A regional effort to expand New England's pipeline capacity was unveiled last year, but it has since been stalled. The report estimated that if natural gas prices in New England were on par to those of other areas of the Northeast, electricity customers in the region could save about $1.5 billion a year, with $120 million of that in Maine.
