SNYDER — When you open the Development Corporation of Snyder’s website, you will be greeted with an instantly recognizable tune from the 1960s popular sitcom, “The Beverly Hillbillies.”

Of course, who doesn’t know the story of Jed Clampett’s oil-filled swamp that made him millions of dollars, making it possible for him to move his family to “Californy.”

Snyder has a very rich history — and that can be taken literally — with oil. In fact, the city and Scurry County still relies heavily on oil.

And it is expected to explode yet again with the Cline Shale play, an emerging unconventional resource play on the eastern flank of the Midland basin that runs 140 miles north to south and is 70 miles wide, including portions of Coke, Fisher, Glasscock, Howard, Irion, Nolan, Mitchell, Scurry

Boom to Bust is common place where there is a lot of economic activity. I came from a coal mining town and many years ago there was a town near each coal mine.

Oil is being made every day faster than man can use it. The earth will never run out of oil.

Pardon my ignorance of geography, but not this article, not even the website it's on says anything about where this Snyder is located, I mean, what state it's in. Without additional research, I don't think the average person would know. Unless he's from Snyder, or maybe Arkansas (Jed Clampett), Texas (some town names I recognize), or Oklahoma (OKC is mentioned, or even maybe some other oil-producing state.

He better enjoy it now, because when Obama and his posse agenda takes place, he will be paying billions
In fees, licensings etc. along with other private owners and investors. If they want to stay in the game.
