Working natural gas in storage in the Lower 48 United States ended the natural gas injection season at 3,776 billion cubic feet (Bcf), according to estimates based on data from our Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report released on November 16. The Lower 48 states will enter the winter heating season, which runs from November 1—March 30, with the most natural gas in storage since 2020. In addition, we now have 5% more natural gas in U.S. inventories entering the winter heating season than the previous five-year (2018—22) average, and 7% more than last October 31.
