North Dakota's oil production has increased 600%, there are now 8,400 active wells in the state. Each well requires about 2,000 truck trips in its first year of operation. On the highway running through the area, traffic has leapt from 1,500 cars a day to 14,000, and roads are being expanded by the state from two to six lanes. Now, who again is building and paying for the infrastructure – that’s right folks “they didn’t built that” the taxpayer did! The local fast-food franchises are struggling to find employees, so they’re offering $16 an hour and signing bonuses of $300. Local strippers claim they can make $3,000 in tips per night. And average weekly wages are up 50% since 2009. The number of taxpayers reporting over $1 million income in North Dakota has nearly tripled from selling mineral rights to oil companies.
Correct the Tax payers built it.

The greatest Bakken oil production comes from Elm Coulee Oil Field, Richland County, Montana, where production began in 2000 and is expected to ultimately total 270 million barrels (43,000,000 m3). In 2007, production from Elm Coulee averaged 53,000 barrels per day (8,400 m3/d)— more than the entire state of Montana a few years earlier.

New interest developed in 2006 when EOG Resources of Houston, Texas reported that a single well it had drilled into an oil-rich layer of shale below Parshall, North Dakota was anticipated to produce 700,000 barrels (110,000 m3) of oil. The Parshall Oil Field discovery, combined with other factors, including an oil-drilling tax break enacted by the state of North Dakota in 2007, shifted attention in the Bakken from Montana to the North Dakota side. The number of wells drilled in the North Dakota Bakken jumped from 300 in 2006 to 457 in 2007. Those same sources show oil production in the North Dakota Bakken increasing 229%, from 2.2 million barrels (350,000 m3) in 2006 to 7.4 million barrels (1,180,000 m3) in 2007.

Bakken formation

The Bakken formation /ˈbɑ&#72 0;kən/ is a rock unit from the Late Devonian to Early Mississippian age occupying about 200,000 square miles (520,000 km2) of the subsurface of the Williston Basin, underlying parts of Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The formation was initially described by geologist J.W. Nordquist in 1953. The formation is entirely in the subsurface, and has no surface outcrop. It is named after Henry Bakken, a farmer in Tioga, North Dakota who owned the land where the formation was initially discovered, in a boring for oil.

Did I say the POTUS controls the price of gas? Did I say that the highest price ever paid WASN'T under Bush? Uh...nope.

Care to make anymore strawman arguments to make yourself look like an even bigger dumbass??

And since you brought it up (gas prices under certain presidents)...look at the AVERAGE price of petrol during the Bush admistration, and than compare it to the AVERAGE price during that of Obama (be prepared for a hefty serving of crow, Barefoot).

Who here remembers the libtards all insisting that it was Bush's fault for the high gas prices because he was pandering to his Big-Oil buddies???

What's your point. Demand is the driving force. And China's the driver.

So you people shouldn't be complaining. You should be cheering the Chinese have figured it out.

So odd you people.....

The high during the Gdub administration was $4.12. The average price of a regular gallon of gas at U.S. pumps was $1.85 when Bush was sworn in for his second term. A reminder for those with learning disabilities - gas prices are set by global oil markets and domestic demand at the pump, not by Presidents. Okay moron!!!!!

Economic activity in the US is still in the pits.[/QUOTE]

When you are getting paid under the table, living off of me and others in this forum, eating food stamps in section eight housing, things may look dour.

For people who work for a living and who own stock and real estate, the economy in the last five years has roughly doubled.

Ask your slum lord boss for a raise. He may insist you stop posting here on this forum during the day and get off your fat diabetic azz more than twice a day so I expect to continue to hear you whine.

You useless pathetic leech on society.
