Feb. 3, 2011 - The governor of New Mexico declared a state of emergency as natural gas shortages began affecting various communities in the west. Cities in Arizona also reported shortages.

The cold weather that is extending across much of the United States is not missing the southwest. Frigid weather froze natural gas wells just as increase for the heating fuel was climbing.

NM Gov. Susana Martinez called on residents of her state to lower their thermostats to the mid-60 degree range and to conserve electricity. She said the use of electricity is not isolated from the the supply of natural gas. Pipelines use electrical pumps to move natural gas along; if electricity supplies are also curtailed the pipes will lose pressure. Also, New Mexico uses 4.7 million cubic feet of natural gas to generate electricity.
