Like everything else in North Dakota, demand for airline flights booming
In another sign that North Dakota's economy is booming, airline boardings are up 19 percent in the state — possibly the biggest increase in the nation.

“We’re not aware of any other place in the nation experiencing significant growth in aviation, certainly not at this capacity," Joshua Simmers, aviation projects manager for the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission, told the Fargo Forum.

The biggest increase in demand for flights is western North Dakota, where the Bakken oil fields are drawing entrepreneurs and workers.

Minot saw its boardings increase by 53 percent for October when compared to the same month a year earlier. Williston's Sloulin Field International Airport set a record with 2,429 flights in October, up more than 10 percent over October 2011.

Has nothing at all to do with the state being Republican - is has everything to do with the massive oil boom.

Eastern North Dakota is dying a slow death.

Other than your buddies that used to work at American Crystal Suger (but decided they did not want the 15% increase in wages), do you have any proof of Eastern North Dakota dying a slow death?

I have friends who live there and will say you are full of sh*t.

If a Democrat like Gov GoogleyEyes were in charge of North Dakota, the environmentalists would have found some phoney reason to shut down the oil drilling.

North Dakota Tops U.S. States in Credit Ranking

By Brian Chappatta - May 16, 2012 11:00 PM CT.

North Dakota, with a booming oil industry and an unemployment rate lower than anywhere in the nation, ranks No. 1 in credit quality among U.S. states, according to a report by Conning.

The state rates highest on a measure created from 13 indicators including revenue growth, year-over-year employment gains and foreclosure rates, said Hartford, Connecticut-based Conning, a money manager handling about $87 billion of assets as of Dec. 31. North Dakota rose one spot from November, when Wyoming held the top place.

“That line of states from North Dakota to Texas have a lot of the same characteristics,” including low debt, small social- service costs and booming agriculture and energy businesses, Paul Mansour, managing director at Conning, said in an interview.

The report is another indication that North Dakota’s natural-resource endowment is pushing the third-least-populous state to the front of the nationwide recovery. The state was the nation’s third-largest oil producer as of February, behind Texas and Alaska.

North Dakota’s economy outpaced every other state in 2011, with the fastest growth in personal income, jobs and home prices, according to Bloomberg Economic Evaluation of States. It has the nation’s lowest unemployment rate, 3 percent, Labor Department data show.

You attack East North Dakota, now you support it and attack Western North Dakota? At least keep your stupidity in some sort of check.
