The U.S. is set to have the hottest year on record. Natural gas prices have rallied sharply as utility companies have been using more natural gas to generate the electricity needed to power air conditioners across the U.S. Since reaching a decade low in April prices have soared 62 percent, largely in part of the hot summer weather.

Prices also received a boost last Thursday after the Energy Information Administration reported that natural gas supplies increased by 24 billion cubic feet. According to analysts' surveyed by Platts supplies were expected to rise between 27 million bcf and 31 million bcf.
