Natural Gas Price Prediction – Prices Fall Despite Upgrade of Hurricane DeltaWarm weather erodes prices
Natural Gas prices whipsawed on Tuesday declining 3.8%, after rallying more than 7% on Monday. Hurricane Delta was upgraded to a category 4 storm as it moved into the Gulf of Mexico. The strength of the storm will likely knock out between 25-50% of the US Gulf natural gas production. The decline in prices comes as the weather in the US is expected to be warmer than normal over the next two weeks reducing heating demand.
