no idea why Houston is so popular on this list; it's a boom-bust town; it so happens that oil prices have been high for over a decade now, and there's some chance they'll stay high for awhile...but Houston's economic fate is still strongly correlated with oil prices

That was kind of my thought for now. Once the economy diversifies further, I think it will be different though.
