In total, the EIA reports natural gas stocks fell by 99 Bcf last week, dropping from 2,296 Bcf to 2,197 Bcf. This is 19.3% below the 2,723 Bcf that was in storage at this point last year, and is 16.2% below the five-year average of 2,622.

The only build was seen in salt stocks in the South Central region, which added 18 Bcf after a massive draw last week. The largest draw came in the Midwest region, where stocks declined by 38 Bcf.

Stocks in every region are below the five-year average. Gas in storage in the salt stocks of the South Central region is 35.5% lower than the five-year average for the area.
