R Wrapper for the Energy Information Administration (EIA) API.
This package provides programmatic access to the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) API (See http://www.eia.gov/beta/api/). There are currently over a million unique time series available through the API. To use the package you'll need a free API key from here: http://www.eia.gov/beta/api/register.cfm
The package also contains a function to return the latest EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report. This function does not require an API key.
The package has 3 main functions, getCatEIA and getEIA.
getCatEIA: allows you to query the parent and subcategories of a given category, as well as any series IDs within that category.
getEIA: allows you to pull a time series (given by the series ID). The resulting object is of class xts.
wngsr: returns the latest EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report.
