The number is now at the lowest level since October 2009. The gas rig count increased by one to 87, taking the total down 9 to 406, a new low for the series since it began in 1947.

The oil rig count fell last week by 4.

The series has collapsed in the wake of the most recent oil decline that started almost two years ago. Oil prices have rebounded this year by nearly 40%, however.
