Natural-gas futures mark highest finish since 2018; oil futures finish lower


Natural-gas futures rallied to their highest settlement in more than two and a half years on Thursday, with a developing storm system expected to approach the U.S. Gulf Coast on Sunday, potentially disrupting energy operations in the region. Oil futures, however, finished with a loss, easing back after three consecutive sessions of gains. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, September natural gas
which expires at the end of Friday’s session, climbed 29 cents, or 7.4%, to settle at $4.18 per million British thermal units, the highest front-month finish since December 2018, FactSet data show. October West Texas Intermediate crude
lost 94 cents, or 1.4%, to close at $67.42 a barrel.
