It's Different This Time... Rig-Count Edition

In July 2008, crude oil prices peaked and began to fall quickly.

Today, it has now been almost 6 months since oil peaked and began its accelerating free-fall and rig counts have just started to drop (still 2% above the June peak oil levels)...  

There is always a lag... and with permits down 40%, let's just see if it's different this time...
