No, not anytime soon. Estimates vary, but the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook 2021 said as of January 1, 2019, there was about 2,867 Tcf of technically recoverable resources of dry gas in the United States. Assuming the 2019 average consumption remains constant at 34 Tcf annually, the United States in 2021 had enough dry gas to last about 84 years.
