The energy sector has had a great 2022, and it dramatically outperformed the S&P 500. The year 2023, however, may not be as exciting as 2022. Commodity prices are expected to normalize in 2023, with natural gas, coal, and crude oil prices forecast to be lower in 2023, compared to 2022.

We possibly saw a hint of that in December, a month that wasn’t as exciting for the energy sector as the rest of 2022. Let’s take a look at the five best and worst performing energy stocks in December 2022.
