Stopped and asked and found out today that Elk City is getting another New Motel. They are Building a Sleep INN just east of Roma's across the road south of Loves East. Looks to me like they are flooding the Motel Market a little bit.

I don't know if you all are aware of it, but we do have a lot of people who come to EC to work. The motels we have ow are full most of the time. Motels and housing are both needed. And why do you care if you aren't paying for it?

Did I say I cared? NO I just stated they were building one. The Oil Field is Slowing down a bit and they could be hard up to Fill the rooms tho.

I agree we dont need another motel granted the ones we do have are full, but what elk city needs is some resturants. I work at a motel and everyone is complaining that we have only a few decent places to eat, and when they are here for awhile they are all rady sick of the ones that are here. So lets hope that they put some resturants in SOON..

Really If you don't think he Oilfield has slowed down get out and drive the country the Number of wells is down and Drilling has slowed drive by the oil field equipment yards and businesses that service wells and you will see a lot more stacked out trucks and Equipment. This is what happened in the 80's when the oilfield crashed and Yes I will agree the slow down is not near as rapid as it wa back in the 80's but is is definately slowing down some.

its not the time of year or election time talk to the landmen checking records for the big oil companys they will tell you drilling has slowed and so has there business. Arrowhead has even quit leasing for Chesapeake and the big oil companys have slowed down on leasing minerals right now. It has been slowing down for a while now and the offshore drilling is increasing which also hurts the industry around here. Plus Gas is in abundance right now and prices have dropped to a point it isn't profitable right now to drill for gas Oil prices are still ok but gas is through the floor.
