Natural Gas:  The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 473 billion cubic feet--0.8% (or 4 billion cubic feet) less than last week and 55 billion cubic feet or 10.4% below the 5-year average.  As of April 9, the national inventory level is 1,049 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of almost 2 trillion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
