Propane:  Midwest inventory (or PADD II) is 21.8 million barrels--2.8% higher than last week's inventory level and 7.9% higher than last month's level with inventory levels at the bottom of the normal range.  The Energy Information Administration estimates 25 million barrels in storage by the end of September to be a benchmark for the Midwest.  As of August 20, the national inventory level is 54.8 million barrels.  Industry observers believe a 60-million-barrel level for national inventory is adequate prior to the start of the heating season.

Natural Gas:  The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 1,489 billion cubic feet--4.1% more than last week and 56 billion cubic feet above the 5-year average.  As of August 20, the national inventory level is 2,614 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of about 386 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
