Analysts surveyed by Platts forecast a decline of between 47 billion cubic feet and 51 billion cubic feet. Total stocks now stand at 1,467 trillion cubic feet, up 507 billion cubic feet from a year ago and 225 billion cubic feet below the five-year average, the government said. April natural gas was at $2.805 per million British thermal units, down 11.5 cents, or 3.9%. It was trading around $2.849 before the data.
