Gas Prices

Henry Hub Spot Price can help you track your daily gas prices 

Oil Prices

Brent-Europe oil prices can be tracked on the EIA website 

Daily Futures Prices

Daily futures prices for oil and natural gas. Look for the first month's contract available.

Part Two: Company Research

Company Websites

A company will also post its annual reports and filings on their website.  You will usually look for a tab marked Investors, which may be under the About Us section of a website. Also in this area of a website is where you will most likely find news or press releases
