MTECHTIPS;-U.S. natural gas futures extend bounce off March lows

MTECHTIPS;-U.S. natural gas futures were higher for the second straight session on Wednesday, extending a recent bounce off the lowest levels since March as traders monitored shifting weather forecasts to assess the outlook for summer demand and supply levels. U.S. natural gas for July tacked on 3.0 cents, or around 1%, to $3.072 per million British thermal units by 9:15 AM ET (1315 GMT). It settled higher for the first time in seven sessions on Tuesday after falling to its lowest since March 20 at $2.935 at the start of the week. Natural gas prices have closely tracked weather forecasts in recent weeks, as traders try to gauge the impact of shifting outlooks on summer heating demand. Gas use typically hits a seasonal low with spring’s mild temperatures, before warmer weather increases demand for gas-fired electricity generation to power air conditioning. Nearly 50% of all U.S. households use gas for heating. Total natural gas in storage currently stands at 2.525 trillion cubic feet, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, 12.8% lower than levels at this time a year ago but 8.9% above the five-year average for this time of year
