ugly little town isn't it? Why don't they have the owners of these old buildings spruce them up a bit? Looks like an old Steven KIng movie set in that town! Looks very outdated, dirty and depressing!

You sure nailed the situation on the head. Since the boom crash downtowns been going downhill.

Such an adorable little town! I was born in Cushing Oklahoma 48 years ago and it holds a special place in my heart. I've lived in California almost all my life but I'm thinking about moving back to my birth place. I have very loving family that live in Cushing Olkahoma and it would be nice to spend some quality time with them. I know that my husband Jonathan and daughter Natalie would just love it there.

Where's that vast revenue stream new businesses were supposed to bring in to revitalize the town? The publisher of the now defunct daily newspaper was going around shooting off her mouth, as long ago as November 2005, claiming her inside sources at the Chamber of Commerce had confided to her that Conoco-Phillips was going to start building a big new refinery in Cushing right away. Well, what happened to this supposed propserity that would have made the downtown look non-Zombielike?

That was shot down by congress http://www.vansopinion.com/modules.php...
Oil companies manipulate refinery status because more refined gasoline on the market would mean lower prices. No new refineries have been built in the U.S. in over 30 years. http://www.corpwatch.org/article.php...
