PriorActual
Weekly Change64 bcf65 bcf

Highlights
Natural gas in storage rose 65 billion cubic feet in the October 27 week to 3,775 bcf. The thirty-first consecutive weekly increase since the traditional end of the heating season (and 1 week before the end of the injection season) exceeded the 54 bcf build in the same week a year ago, but stocks remain 4.6 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, natural gas inventories are 1.1 percent below the 5-year average for this time of year, and remain within the 5-year historical range 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
