[quote:Anonymous Coward 10246824:MV8yMTA4MDcyXzM1NTMzMTQyX0ExMDE3NjEy] Williston North Dakota is in the Heart of the Bakken oil boom for the U.S. There is another boom across the border in South East Saskatchewan & South Western Manitoba. Hookers earn more money in Williston North Dakota than they do in Las Vegas. A very young man fresh out of high school asked the bank for a loan to build a hotel. The bank said no! So he went to Weatherford (a oil & gas service company) and asked them if they needed rooms for their employees. They said yes and promissed to rent every room for 5 years and signed a legal agreement. He went back to the bank and now owns a brand new hotel. Williston North Dakota is projected to have a population of 400 000 in another 4 years. [/quote]
A plain, one-bedroom apartment in Williston, N.D., rents for $2,100 a month. For this price, you could rent a one-bedroom apartment in New York City.
Williston is not New York City. There are 30,000 residents and one department store. The nearest city is two hours away.
