    As you may know, Cruz Construction started a division in North Dakota
    just 6 months ago.

    They send every Kenworth (9 trucks) we had here in Alaska to North
    Dakota and several drivers.

    They just bought two new Kenworth's to add to that fleet; one being a
    Tri Drive tractor and a new 65 ton lowboy to go with it.

    They also bought two new cranes (one crawler & one rubber tired) for
    that division.

    Dave Cruz said they have moved more rigs in the last 6 months in ND than
    Cruz Construction moved in Alaska in the last 6 years.

    Williston is like a gold rush town; they moved one of our 40 man camps
    down there since there are no rooms available.

    Unemployment in ND is the lowest in the nation at 3.4 percent last I

    See anything in the national news about how the oil industry is fueling
    North Dakota 's economy?

    Here's an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:

    About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and
    one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest.

    The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I
    would like a direct answer;

    how much oil does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a
    beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together."

    The U. S.. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only
    scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.

    It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil
    was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota,

    western South Dakota, and extreme eastern Montana.

    Check THIS out:

    The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe
    Bay , and has the potential to

    eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information
    Administration (EIA) estimates

    it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable( 5
    billion barrels), at $107 a barrel,

    we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

    "When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see
    their jaws hit the floor.

    They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's
    financial analyst.

    "This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found
    in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette .

    It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly
    referred to as the 'Bakken.'

    It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada

    For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end.

    Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells
    decades ago.

    However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's
    massive reserves,

    and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is
    light, sweet oil,

    those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL !!!!!!

    That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years

    And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should -
    because it's from 2006 !!!!!!

    U.. S. Oil Discovery - Largest Reserve in the World

    Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

    Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the
    largest untapped oil reserve in the world.

    It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush
    mandated its extraction.

    In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted.

    With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore

    They reported this stunning news:

    We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves
    on earth.

    Here are the official estimates:

    8 times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

    18 times as much oil as Iraq

    21 times as much oil as Kuwait

    22 times as much oil as Iran

    500 times as much oil as Yemen

    and it's all right here in the Western United States !!!!!!

    HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the
    environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America
    become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group
    of people dictate our lives and our economy. WHY?

    James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in
    this very compact area than the entire Middle East, more than 2 TRILLION
    barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of
    crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post .

    Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price even with this find? Think again!
    It's all about the competitive marketplace, it has to.

    Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

    Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

    Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you
    should stifle yourself the next time

    you complain about gas prices, by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right
    to complain.

    Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you
    sent this to every one in your address book.

    By the way, this can be verified. Check it out at the link below !!!!!!

    My thoughts would be that the oil extracted from that site will still be sold at a premium and to other countries while we buy the Mid East oil and/or from South America .

    It still will be sold on the world markets, at what ever price it demands. You think the oil companies are just going to refine the oil and sell us the gas for .50 a gallon, because it only cost $16 dollars a barrel to produce. Come on, really. The only way the U.S.A. is going to benefit is by the tax revenue, which by the way has been cut to minimal proportions. Jon

    The East has the Marcellus Shale powering PA's economy and the Utica is not far behind and has the potential to dwarf it all.
