Natural gas prices in Europe fluctuated on Monday after Russia’s decision to continue flows via Ukraine, while weather forecasts point to cold temperatures ahead.

Benchmark futures pared losses after falling as much as 6.8%. Russia’s Gazprom PJSC announced early on Monday that it will not curb gas shipments to Moldova via Ukraine, as it had threatened, easing worries that it might eventually completely halt supplies in its last remaining active route to Europe.
