Natural gas’s unprecedented share of U.S. power generation is likely to keep growing as the biggest price slide in a year and the prospect of stricter pollution rules erode the market for coal.

Electricity generated using natural gas will rise to 2.46 billion kilowatt-hours a day this year from 2005’s 1.874 billion, according to the Energy Department. Coal-powered electricity will average 5.10 billion kilowatt-hours a day, down from 2005’s 5.458 billion.
