Electricity Market Share Back in Favor of Coal

Remember a couple of months ago when it made big news that coal and natural gas had tied in terms of market share of fuels for power generation.  In April 2012, both coal and gas fueled 34.2% of the power generated in the U.S.  Since then, coal has moved back in front with a 36.4% market share.  The June numbers show natural gas in second place at 32.1%, while all other sources (hydro, solar, wind, geothermal, etc.) cumulatively represent 31.5%.
