Highlights
Natural gas in storage rose 89 billion cubic feet in the May 4 week to 1,432 bcf. Only the second consecutive weekly build following a weather-related 3-week delay in the traditional start of the injection season, when builds are the norm, was nearly twice as large as the 45 bcf increase last year and exceeded the 82 bcf average increase over the last five years in the comparable week. Gas stocks remained within the 5-year historical range for this time of year but were 37.6 percent below last year's level and 26.6 percent below the 5-year average for the period.

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
