U.S. natural gas slips as exports decline, coronavirus demand destruction worries

Reuters: U.S. natural gas futures slipped for a fifth day in a row on Wednesday as pipeline and liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports declined and on long-term forecasts government steps to slow the spread of coronavirus will cut demand in coming months. Traders noted those price decline came despite a slowdown in output and short-term forecasts for cooler weather and higher heating use over the next two weeks than earlier expected. Front-month gas futures for May delivery on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell 2.9 cents, or 1.8%, to $1.621 per million British thermal units at 8:12 a.m. EDT (1212 GMT), their lowest in over a week. That puts the front-month down for a fifth day in a row for the first time since October. During that time, the contract has lost about 12%. For more on this story visit or click
