UK #gas prices rebound after touching 2012 lows

British prompt gas prices rebounded slightly on Wednesday due to a relief rally after prices slumped to a three-week low on Tuesday and supply fell short of demand.

Within-day gas prices rose 0.60 pence at 52.60 pence per therm after touching a 2012 low of 51.80 pence on Tuesday afternoon, with day-ahead gas trading at the same level.

A drop in terminal send-out and a slower pace of storage withdrawals made the system slightly undersupplied, data from National Grid showed.
The network manager forecast gas demand at 335 million cubic meters/day, which is pegged about 4 percent below the seasonal average as mild temperatures prompt households to turn down thermostats.
