...is happening now. What will be the next big driver of our economy? I'm betting it's energy, and not "green" energy. Besides the huge oil sands area in Canada, we have the rapidly developing oil fields of western North Dakota and eastern Montana. There are huge oil shale deposits in western Colorado, northeastern Utah, and southwestern Wyoming. The U.S. Geological Survey estimates there are trillions of barrels of oil in the oil shale, of which about 800 billion barrels are recoverable. That's twice the reserves of Saudi Arabia! And in south Texas huge natural gas fields are being developed. So much natural gas there and elsewhere that it's estimated to provide 200 years of energy if we switched our cars to running on natural gas. Wherever you find energy development you'll see a need for Express services. I've just won a route in a remote area out west. The town has a super Walmart, a 5 screen multiplex, a Golden Corral, and air service to Denver. The town has 9000 residents with about 35,000 people, including the town, in the county. Oil field work has driven the growth and provided the amenities. I'll be on my own, the station is 170 miles to the west. If you are in a position to do so consider finding a route in a growing area that's driven by oil and gas drilling. That will secure your future for decades.
