Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What is true is that the difference between the futures for a given expiration date and the spot price decreases as the expiration date approaches. The same thing is true of the price of bonds: as their maturity approaches the price approaches the principal or face value.
