In the feature article of this issue of the Commodity Markets Update, Ryan Ramos looks at the New York Harbor, where the importance of infrastructure spending has been and will continue to be a key driver of the Port of New York and New Jersey's continued prosperity. In addition, Isaac Perkins discusses the history and future of electric power generation in the U.S., where government policy helped connect natural gas’s overtaking of coal’s electricity generation share, thereby stabilizing the grid. In another article, Perkins discusses the dynamics driving the domestic blending market to determine whether ethanol’s presence in the supply chain is as precarious as it seems. Finally, Ramos delves into the metallurgical coal market, where a long out-of-favor commodity that faced significant microeconomic headwinds is climbing.
