Natural Gas Futures Are Up

January natural gas was last up 32.1 cents, or 3.8%, to $8.88 per million British thermal units, finding support from forecasts for colder weather in much of the U.S. as well as strength in crude-futures prices. January natural gas touched a high of $8.94, its strongest intraday level since Sept. 14. January crude was up $1.11 at $62.10 a barrel following a more than two-week high of $62.35.
