It's not just supply and demand that's driving the price of rent up, but companies who rent places and are willing to pay any price that's listed by the owner.

Welcome to capitalism! It's funny how everyone votes republican and talks adoringly about corporations until they get steamrolled by capitalism and instantly become liberals screaming "it isn't fair."
One person even mentioned "rent control". I bet that word wasn't used much in this great red state pre oil.

2008- You all just need to pull yourself up by the boot straps! We want the government out of our lives.

2012- Oil Boom hits, ND gets its face used to pull on the boot straps, then BAM "We need rent control, why isn't the government doing anything?"

Careful what you wish for...

The oil boom has been here for several years, it got a boost from news broadcasts last November. That is where the huge influx came from, recession and jobless people coming for the many, many jobs. You're responding to a thread that is over a year old. You're voicing opinions all over these threads like you know what your talking about, re: North Dakota, and/or Oil Fields, from what I can see from your posts you've never been to North Dakota, or worked in the oil field. Maybe just a thought, reserve these really strong, often rude and opinionated diatribes for after you've been here and earned your stripes. What do you say??

A fair point but I don't do softball questions and right now the web is one of my main intel sources. So far no surprises.
