Canada Heavy Oil Drops Below $35 As Rig Count Hits Record Low For January

Canada Heavy Oil Drops Below $35 As Rig Count Hits Record Low For January (Zerohedge, Jan 6, 2015):

Think Texas and Pennsylvania have a problem with plunging oil prices, don’t look North. West Canada Select (Heavy) crude oil prices have collapsed to below $35 per barrel (the lowest since Feb 2009). This is a 60% plunge in the last 6 months and has left the industry stunned. While US rig counts have fallen for the last few weeks as the lagged response to falling prices finally catches up to reality, the Canadian oil rig count has never been lower for the first week of January. Will the Canadian housing bubble be next?
