March 18, 2019: See first comment. Most of what I wrote this week was just a regurgitation of natural gas stats accessed through the natural gas storage report page. Key points were that this was the largest natural gas withdrawal on record for the month of March (but not by a lot; there was also a 198 bcf and a 192 bcf March draw in recent years) and that with our supplies now 359 billion cubic feet below where they were on the same date in 2018, we have to add an average of at least 10 billion cubic feet more natural gas to storage each week for the rest of this year than we did last year to avoid going into next winter in worse shape than we did this one...
April should afford us the opportunity to catch up, though, since last April was unusually cool. Anything close to normal temperatures, and injections should start April 1st.

Link here. In addition, we should see a nice in-depth analysis of this on Sunday, March 17, 2019. Hey, isn't that St Patrick's Day? Sunday? Well, that's a bummer. Need to celebrate Saturday, starting about noon, I suppose.
Now, back to natural gas.
Comments later, but the current "gap" is the widest in recent memory.
