Analysis and Recommendations:

Natural Gas is trading at 2.751 adding 0.026, as markets adjust and correct from their reaction after inventories were released yesterday. U.S. natural gas prices fell sharply yesterday after cooler than normal temperatures led to lower demand for power to drive air conditioners, the Energy Information Administration said.

During the week ending August 15, U.S. gas consumption fell 2.7% from the previous week, led by a drop of 6.8% in the power sector. Average U.S. temperatures during the week were 2 degrees cooler than the same period in 2011. Working natural gas in underground storage increased to 3.261 trillion cubic feet as of August 10, an implied net injection of 20 billion cubic feet from the previous week. Storage levels are up almost 16% from a year ago.
