Wait...what? Why'd you use "1's" instead of just a normal 'L'?

So... If gas goes up to $3-$4/gallon then Houston should be doing fine, right ?

I'm curious, going to the chron and looking for jobs through their careerbuilder search, It shows tons of jobs availible.

Are those just jobs from companies that have already paid for their advertisements and are currently not hiring or do these jobs really exist ? I know I've heard the job market is crashing down there but hell, you should see the jobs listed up here in Tennessee for people with no college.

That's what I was thinking. if gas goes up, Houston's economy will do better. Having said that, I like gas where it is, and this will help Houston diversify even more than it already is.

To moddestmike, I actually want to break into the oil industry as a roustabout, but heard they're slowing down oil production because of the low fuel prices. I'm not picky, I'd settlle for $13 an hour for an oil job.

Now is a very tough time to break in to O&G. Maybe try back in late 2010.
