Welcome to the latest edition of the Energy Recap. Last week, we added two charts that provide data from the EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report. We'll continue to feature updates on those charts each week, just like we do with the U.S. oil rig count chart.

Just for this week, we wanted to share an interesting chart we found that shows the evolution of the total number of rigs directed toward natural gas in the United States. It also displays an annual change in the rig count. If this chart is something you'd like to see updated in the recap each week, please let us know in the comments below.
