Forecasts for cold weather have seen natural gas prices gain approximately 45.0 percent year-to-date and on Wednesday hit a five-year high. Prices pulled back slight Thursday after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported inventories declined 250 billion cubic feet for the week ended February 14th. "The supplies of working gas - the stuff that is ready to go - are really low and could get dangerously low if the summer heats up too much," said Richard Hastings, a macro strategist at Global Hunter Securities. Here is how some natural gas stocks reacted Thursday:
