    * 1st month where EROC replaced CEP. Oct was 1st month PSE was dropped.
    Sector average yield stats are not that useful due to several E&Ps [like ATN, BBEP, CEP and QELP] eliminating distributions in 2008 and 2009, and with BBEP re-starting distributions in 2010. In February of 2012, LRE, MCEP, MEMP and QRE were added to the sector, dropping the influence of zero distribution paying CEP had on the sector average. Due to those distortions, the month end yield history on LINE is also included below as a representative of sector yields for each time period.
