Natural Gas Futures for November 2022 settled up $0.306 @ $6.741/mmbtu trading in a 0.440 cent range including the overnight session. Germany and the Netherlands have proposed a package of 10 measures that the European Union could use to curb gas prices and avoid fuel rationing, including looking into setting a new benchmark price for liquefied natural gas. The plan for the most part calls for the EU to kickstart joint gas buying, to avoid one country outbidding another and driving prices higher. The two countries said they were open to the EU creating a new LNG benchmark and asked the European Commission to develop this while assessing whether such a price needed to remain voluntary. They said a broad gas price cap on imports was a less preferable option.
