Weekly Change51 bcf64 bcf

Highlights
Natural gas in storage rose 64 billion cubic feet in the October 20 week to 3,710 bcf. The thirtieth consecutive weekly increase since the traditional end of the heating season (and 2 weeks before the end of the injection season) was smaller than the 73 bcf build in the same week a year ago and below the 5-year average build of 75 bcf for the period. The weekly increase put stocks 4.8 percent below their level last year at this time, when they were bloated by inventory left over from an unusually mild winter. In a longer term comparison, stocks are 1.2 percent below their 5-year average for this time of year, but remain close to the middle of the 5-year range.

Definition
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides weekly information on natural gas stocks in underground storage for the U.S. and five regions of the country. The level of inventories helps determine prices for natural gas products.  Why Investors Care
