Natural Gas Prices Headed to $1

Good thing I didn’t listen to my local gas and electric company last year, and lock in those “low” natural gas rates.

After reporting on that here in December 2011, natural gas fell from $3.60 to less than $2.

So it’s no surprise that after another $1.50+ drop, the fools are rushing out to call the bottom.

Natural gas prices “are as low as they’ll get,” said T. Boone Pickens in recent interviews, for example.

But the man may just be out of his mind. Calling the bottom in natural gas here is like trying to call the bottom in housing.
