the advancement in tech like fracking has made the ability to unlock oil and gas that has been unavailable before affordable....the US has plenty of oil and gas reserves for many years and some believe that the earth will never run out because its always producing hydrocarbons....the problem will be in hindrances in laws and acceptance by the public and environmentalist....i fancy myself a environmentalist and yet the reality is that we owe our livelihoods in this area to mineral extraction....the oil boom may scale back a little but will never go back to where it had bottomed out since the oil production in the middle east is slowing down with little new reserves being found...the only thing that will hurt us is if opec were to ramp up production and sell for half of what they are now...this would discourage new exploration in this area since it would be easier and cheaper to buy from the mid east....if israel were to war against some mideast countries and kill production from their we would have a boom that would be almost unbearable since all production would come from this hemisphere....the one thing that would kill the industry in this area for a while is the refinery in artesia having a major castrophe....when they had a shutdown for maintenance in the winter the area slowed way down.....work slowed for most oil and gas related industries except for drilling because there was no place to put it .....what the area needs is a new and modern refinery that would compete with them and others in el paso where some of the production has began going since western refinery ramped up production...but the ability to build and produce inside a big city hampers them but would be perfect for the loving or blackriver area....

After this oil and natural gas boom what is Carlsbad going to do with all these motels, Visitation at the Caverns is Way Down the word is out on the Internet "Carlsbad Caverns Elevators Are Not Working"; having a long wait for the small elevators or having to walk out when it is busy people traveling with their senior parents and grandparents are staying away because of this long wait.
The Prices at the Motels have Skyrocketed "" Not Visitor Friendly Prices "", that is another thing people are seeing on the Internet, the way the Economy is and how far you have to drive out of the way, I would stay on the interstates.

So you're saying that years from now the CCNP still won't have the elevators working? Wow, I'm not even sure the National Park system is that lame. As for motel prices, the market dictates that. If the rooms aren't full the prices will come down. Duh. You sure like to complain a lot don't you?
