Why my interest in the Bakken oil field is increasing

(Cross-post from my other blog, Nonprofit Update)

For quite a while now I’ve been fascinated by the rapid increase in oil production in the Bakken field in North Dakota. 

Have had a lot of posts on my blog Outrun Change.  Under 1% unemployment in one county. Production graphs that are going vertical.  More oil produced in ND than California. That kind of stuff.

This month my interest level took off like those oil production charts.

A few weeks ago, my wife and I waved farewell to our son as he drove off to the Dakotas to seek his future and fortune.  Opportunities for a young person are really poor in Southern California.  I’m talking really lousy. So, he’s been in North Dakota looking for work and lodging.  He starts work today.

Obviously, you will be hearing lots more from me about the oil boom.
