I remembered a few days ago seeing a clip about an oil boom in a west Tx town, perhaps this will be helpful for someone new, hey, no winter driving!
Texas town enjoys its latest oil rush.
Signing on bonuses of $5,000 for truckers, new tracks and rail-yard facilities to handle increased traffic, and more hotels, houses and industrial parks - it's boom time in Odessa, West Texas, which is enjoying its latest oil rush. Companies that are benefiting include Union Pacific (UNP
) and Apache Corp. (APA
), while Texas' tax revenue climbed 14% to $36.4B through June.
