Last week, North American benchmark crude oil prices hit their highest level since October 2014. And while natural gas has backed off from this month’s peak, the fuel continues to trade a stone’s throw away from its highest price since mid-2008.

These higher commodity prices are the inevitable consequence of years of underinvestment in oil and gas production and infrastructure, which in hindsight really stretch back to when oil traded comfortably over $100 a barrel in mid-2014. Nonetheless, we still expect energy companies to hold the line on spending when they update their guidance over the next few weeks.
