Highlights
Natural gas in storage rose 46 billion cubic feet in the August 3 week to 2,354 bcf. The fifteenth consecutive weekly build of the injection season exceeded the 19 bcf increase registered last year at this time but was smaller than the average build of 57 bcf in the comparable week over the last 5 years. Gas stocks were 22.2 percent below their level a year ago and 19.5 percent below the 5-year average for the period. For the second week in a row and the second time since the January 19 week, gas stocks were also below the 5-year historical range for this time of year.

Definition
