Natural gas prices finish above $4 for the first time since late 2018, ending today’s session 1.1% higher at $4.003/mmBtu.
The market began the session lower and even extended those declines mid-morning when the EIA reported a larger-than-normal storage injection last week that highlighted moderately weak, mid-summer demand. But investors quickly shrugged off that bearish sentiment and buying resumed late in the session as investors focused on what could be a hotter-than-normal August in some key consumption regions such as North Texas and part of the South.
