Natural resource is a limited resource and its utilization with proper planning is utmost important for human being. Natural gas is one of the highly consumed natural resource which requires a proper planning and utilization. Environmental factor such as temperature, humidity is few of the factors which effect the natural gas consumption. In this paper, the consumption of natural gas is evaluated with respect to environmental factors through neural network based approach and compared the forecasting results. The analysis results and comparison model show the better results and could be used in forecasting of the future natural gas consumption.
