Monday, March 16th saw the front-month NYMEX Natural Gas Futures Contract open at $1.809, six cents below Friday’s closing price of $1.869.  This followed a weekend decline that was likely impacted by fears of lower demand due to schools and businesses shutting down amid coronavirus worries.  Tallying an intraday low of $1.794 at 9:40AM, prices rose to an intraday high of $1.845 by 12:40PM.  Shedding a few cents as the afternoon came to a close, April finished lower on Monday at $1.815.
