The survey monitors energy firms located and/or headquartered in the Tenth District, with results based on total firm activity nationwide. Survey results reveal changes in several indicators of energy activity, including drilling, capital spending, and employment.  Firms also indicate projections for oil and gas prices. All results are diffusion indexes – the number of firms indicating increases minus the number of firms indicating decreases.
