Western Oklahoma has very limited things to do for teenagers and families. If we really want to have fun, we drive to Oklahoma City. So, if I could pick where I wanted to live, I would choose live in Oklahoma City. I really enjoy being with people and not being limited to certain people. The area I grew up is based mostly on oil field and farming, farms that have been handed down from generation to generation. My family did not grow up here, they were moved here from California due to the oil field. When the oil prices went down, so did everything here. There has been a lot of business that have closed and a lot of families have moved. Unless the oil prices pick back up, I really see a lot of towns in Western Oklahoma turn into even smaller towns due to people moving to the bigger cities where there is more jobs available.

Like most places in Oklahoma, the oil industry is always fluctuating. I believe that most of the employment is western Oklahoma is related to the oilfield industry. Although there are local jobs in stores and retail, most of the higher salary jobs are regulated by the oilfield and farming community. Farming is a generational tradition passed down by most of the residents near me. I was raised in a farming community that teaches only good money comes from getting your hands dirty. The main employers/companies generated from this area include all oilfield regulated companies, and small family farms, which help regulate our water systems and agriculture production. In my community, we specialize in hard work and small town values. We cherish the right of education and overall job outcome in the community. The overall job outlook includes everything from farm hands to more industrialized companies, as the community grows and expands based on jobs available, and demand for rural living.
No matter the reason you travel to my community, you will always be greeted with a smile and a firm handshake by someone with callused hands. We have great pride in all of our small retail or grocery stores. We have great customer service and you can find anything you need in our community. Although due to big companies pushing out all of our mom-and-pop stores, in our community, you could find at least a few left. Being locally owned, most businesses are aware of small community values, so be assured you will always find the right bang for your buck.
