The Associated Press on Wednesday reported that the price of natural gas had fallen to its lowest level in more than a decade, a remarkable decline for a commodity that not long ago was believed to be in short supply.
The country's gas supply is growing so fast that analysts worry that underground storage facilities could be full by fall and lead to further price declines.
On Wedneday, the futrure price fell to $1.984 per 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas, the lowest price since Jan. 28, 2002, when the price hit $1.91.
If the price slides to $1.75, it would be the lowest since March 23, 1999.
