New Mexico and Pennsylvania lost one rig respectively.The Baker Hughes rig counts, first issued in 1944, serve as an important business barometer for drilling firms and their suppliers to gauge the overall business environment of the oil and gas industry.The U.S. rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981 as a result of the oil boom.
