Gulf Coast Western is one of many companies that is taking part in the oil industry in the United States. Over the years, big oil booms have led to the development of business operations in various parts of the United States. One of the most famous areas for oil is Texas, though there is also oil in California, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Alaska, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota and Louisiana. Gulf Coast Western does business in the states that border the Gulf Coast, though they also try to branch out into other parts of the country to do their oil-related business.
The oil industry is very exciting and has provided jobs to massive amounts of people. In a time when the economy was not great in the United States, the domestic oil industry was hiring people. The economic downturn of 2008 made getting and keeping a job very difficult for a lot of people across America. However, at that time, the oil boom in North Dakota was in full swing. There were plenty of jobs in that industry, though it was a matter of getting there, staying safe and having transportation. A lot of people across America did not know about it, did not want to move out of their regions, did not feel secure going to a new place like North Dakota and/or did not have the transit to get there.
The oil boom of Texas happened in the previous century and resulted in a massive explosion in population The reason why there are now massively populated parts of Texas is because of the huge oil booms from the previous century. There are also other states near Texas that have oil reserves. Some people may be surprised to hear that there is an oil industry in Pennsylvania. The oil there was found in the middle 1800s.
