Which of the following, if true, provides the most support for the conclusion above?
(A) Long-term weather forecasts predict a mild winter.
(B) The industrial users who consume most natural gas can quickly and cheaply switch to using oil instead.
(C) The largest sources of supply for both oil and natural gas are in subtropical regions unlikely to be affected by winter weather.
(D) The fuel requirements of industrial users of natural gas are not seriously affected by the weather.
(E) Oil distribution is more likely to be affected by severe winter weather than is the distribution of natural gas.

I'm going with B on this one. The logic makes sense if they each is a substitute for the other.

Will go with B.

Price increases when supply is low and demand is high.
If the price of natural gas increases, industrial customers can switch to oil and demand for natural gas will decrease, hence pulling down the prices for gas.
