EIA Natural Gas Report  
Released On 4/6/2017 10:30:00 AM For wk3/31, 2017
PriorActual
Weekly Change-43 bcf2 bcf

Highlights
Natural gas in storage rose 2 billion cubic feet in the March 31 week to 2,051 bcf. The small weekly increase commences the injection phase of the annual cycle and puts gas stocks 17.2 percent below the exceptionally large year ago level. In a longer term comparison, however, gas stocks are 14.8 percent above the average for the last 5 years for this period and in the upper half of the 5-year historical range. With occasional exceptions, weekly changes in natural gas in storage should be positive from here on until the drawdown phase arrives again in late November.

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