Evolution of National Consumption chart shows the development of our natural gas consumption forecast over time. It also displays the latest EIA forecast and the price of natural gas futures.

This chart enables the trader to view the latest consumption forecast through historical perspective. It also helps establish "associations" between the price level and the level of consumption forecast. For example, on December 29, 2016, two-month consumption forecast hit a 13-day low, whereas the price on that day was near recent highs. This particular situation represented a potential "bearish disparity", which could have served as an additional trading indicator. To see a more detailed breakdown of consumption forecast by periods, visit Daily Changes section.

  • from Jul. 3, 2017 - July, 2017 and August, 2017
  • from Aug. 1, 2017 - August, 2017 and September, 2017
  • from Sep. 1, 2017 - September, 2017 and October, 2017
