Natural Gas:  The East Region's inventory, of which Nebraska is a part, is 1,452 billion cubic feet--3.3% more than last week and 35 billion cubic feet above the 5-year average.  For the week ending August 19, the national inventory level is 2,575 billion cubic feet.  Close to 3 trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of 425 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
