Between 1985 and 1992, U.S. industrial consumption of natural gas increased 3.3%/yr – nearly twice the rate of competing fuels. A new report from the Gas Research Institute details hard-to-collect data on industrial energy consumption. Key findings include: After struggling with the impact of higher energy prices and slow economic growth during the 1970s and early 1980s, the late '80s set the stage for a strong surge in industrial gas and energy consumption in the '90s. Industrial energy consumption grew 1.9%/yr, from 22.9 quads in 1985 to 26.2 quads in 1992. Overall energy consumption growth rate exceeded the rate of growth in industrial production
