Anyone living in Houston for longer then 10 minutes will tell you that oil is king. Strides have been made to diversify but as goes the price of oil so goes the Houston economy. Even if you are in a field or business with nothing to do with oil, chances are your clients or their clients are. 37% of all new jobs created in the US during this recession have been created in Texas. Without reviewing those numbers I would make a guess that most were created in the oil industry. So while the nation suffers with high prices at the pump those same high prices put a great deal of money into the Texas economy. While I hate to pump $ 4 a gallon gas like anyone else… the catch for my family is that on the backside businesses that do business with us pay their bills way faster when the oil companys have more money.
