Texas sees unparalleled economic boom from oil prices

KRISTV | Greg Chandler
Oil prices are expected to stay stable through 2018.
After bottoming out at less than $30 a barrel in January 2016, crude prices closed April at almost $69. Industry experts expect the trend to continue. “We’re expecting the oil price to continue to stay for the rest of the year, and that is good for oil drilling and oil production,” said Texas A&M Corpus Christi Economics Professor Dr. Jim Lee.
