Problem in displaying plot by ggplot2

The code:
ggplot(data = EH, aes(x = date, y = oil)) + geom_point (aes(color = well)) + facet_wrap(~ well)

The date in the plot is not displayed well for each well:

What should I change in the code to enhance the display of (x axis)?

Have a look at ?scale_x_date() and see if that helps. I'm assuming that "date" is a date type (!).

A (slightly modified) example from the help page looks something like this, which might help, but you'd need to adjust to suit the date range of your data:

df <- data.frame(
  date = last_month,
  price = runif(30)
ggplot(df, aes(date, price)) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_date(date_labels = "%b %d")

Try scale_x_date() first (i.e. the defaults) and see if that helps.
