The country's natural gas storage entered the winter heating season at levels down slightly from previous years but still near capacity, according to a report this week from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Storage finished last winter at above-average levels, but increased summer demand limited refilling during the summer season. "From May 2015 through mid-September 2017, working gas levels were higher than the five-year average for 118 out of 122 weeks," the report stated.
Gasoline prices in Oklahoma and nationwide have dropped over the past few days but still are set to mark the highest Thanksgiving gasoline prices in three years. Gasoline prices have closely tracked oil prices, which also are down a bit over the past week after reaching two-year highs earlier this month. "The biggest difference clearly this year is that oil prices are elevated. That's because after Thanksgiving last year, OPEC decided to cut oil production," GasBuddy analyst Patrick DeHaan said.
The recovering oil and natural gas industry is helping to fuel growth throughout the state economy, but the industry's longer-term future is still unclear, state economists said this week. "I'm very optimistic about the price of energy," said Robert Dauffenbach, director of the University of Oklahoma's Center for Economic and Management Research. "We broke through $55 a barrel on WTI (domestic benchmark West Texas Intermediate) crude.
@BrettDOkc The term “legacy well” has many uses and meanings. The bill that was part of the budget plan that was approved in the Legislature last week but vetoed by Gov. Fallin would have raised the gross production tax to 7 percent from 4 percent for wells drilled between 2011 and 2015.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
