Propane:  Midwest inventory (or PADD II) is 13.3 million barrels--5.6% more than last week's inventory level and 19% more than last month's level with inventory levels above 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 April 21, the national inventory level is 32.9 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 930 billion cubic feet--5.6% more than last week and 397 billion cubic feet above the five-year average.  For the week ending April 21, the national inventory level is 1,851 billion cubic feet.  Close to three trillion cubic feet is generally considered to be adequate for winter demand.  This would require an injection of 1,149 billion cubic feet between now and the end of October.
