Cheers to Energy States Hitting the Singles and Doubles

Readers of this blog and Mark Perry's blog know that Texas and North Dakota are America's great energy success stories of recent years, rare bright spots in Obama's centrally planned anemic economy.  They are the home run hitters.  But let's not forget the littler guys doing yeoman work to bring vitality and jobs to their economies and the wondrous blessing of cheap hydrocarbon energy to our country - the states that hit the singles and doubles of our energy game.

Take a bow Oklahoma, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah.
While Texas and North Dakota's boom in oil production have been well-publicized, five other western U.S. states made a notable contribution to the growth in U.S. oil production since 2010, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported Tuesday.

Production in the Williston Basin in North Dakota and Texas' Eagle Ford play and Permian Basin outpaced other regions. However, gains in other Lower 48 states added up to approximately 320,000 bopd of production from February 2010 to February 2013, including the 290,000 bopd in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah.
And there is this little tidbit.
Oklahoma and New Mexico production averaged over 530,000 bopd in February 2013, roughly the same as California's oil production in February.
All part of the "Reverse Grapes of Wrath".  Funny, there's no debt or pension crisis in Oklahoma...just sayin'
