Current Active Drilling Rigs – June 2022

June 28, 2022

Over the past month, oil prices have peaked and valleyed. On May 27th, prices closed at $115.07. Since then, prices hit a high of $122.11 on June 8th. On June 23rd, prices closed at $104.27.

The Energy Information Administration’s June 23rd “This Week in Petroleum” report states US refinery capacity has decreased for the second consecutive year. The EIA says constraints on refinery capacity are contributing to the current record prices for gasoline and diesel fuel.
