When I left for my recent trip to Norman, Oklahoma, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I had never been to Oklahoma before. The cab ride from the Oklahoma City airport to Norman took about 30 minutes, and I was amazed to see actual oil derricks pumping oil. For some reason I thought that all of the wells in the continental US were pumped dry. I later found out that Oklahoma is the third largest producer in the US of oil and that their refining business is giant. Live and learn.
When I checked in at the hotel, these guys were in front of me in line. Now that is what I expected to see.
