In 2000 and 2002, bottoms in natural gas were associated with gas rig counts in the low 600s. That was 7 years ago and the population of the United States has expanded by 8.5%. There has been a lot of construction that has taken place. The current rig count stands at 699 with the lowest in July at 675. While there is lots of supply of natural gas, I cant see how that supply can expand with the rig count numbering in the 600s which was just enough to support a population that was 8.5% lower.
