CHICAGO – Natural gas futures skyrocketed Tuesday to their highest price since 2008 as restricted supplies around the world threaten consumers looking to heat their homes this winter.

According to Dow Jones Market Data, November natural gas gained 55 cents to settle at $6.312 per million British thermal units, the highest front-month contract finish since December 2008.

This confirms the coming heating crisis about to hit consumers as reported yesterday by The Chicago Times.
