Natural Gas:   The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 1,603 billion cubic feet--4% more than last week but 60 billion cubic feet or 4% below the 5-year average.  As of September 19, the national inventory level is 2,688 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of approximately 312 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
