NYMEX natural gas futures have been trading above $2.9/MMBtu since the last week of April, a level not seen since February, on bullish weather patterns as we move into the summer season. Supporting prices further was a smaller than expected increase in the amount of natural gas in storage.

Historically, Natural gas reached an all time high of 15.78 in December of 2005. Natural gas - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on May of 2021.

Natural gas is expected to trade at 2.77 USD/MMBtu by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 2.33 in 12 months time.

Natural gas
Natural gas accounts for almost a quarter of United States energy consumption. The NYMEX Division natural gas futures contract is widely used as a national benchmark price. The futures contract trades in units of 10,000 million British thermal units (mmBtu). The price is based on delivery at the Henry Hub in Louisiana, the nexus of 16 intra- and interstate natural gas pipeline systems that draw supplies from the region's prolific gas deposits. The Natural gas market prices displayed in Trading Economics are based on over-the-counter (OTC) and contract for difference (CFD) financial instruments.
