NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. has so much crude oil that it's running out of places to put it, and that could drive oil and gasoline prices even lower in the coming months.
The Energy Department reported last week that for the past seven weeks the United States has produced and imported an average of 1 million more barrels of oil every day than it's using. That extra crude is flowing into storage tanks, especially at the main trading hub in Cushing, Oklahoma, and pushing U.S. supplies to their highest point in at least 80 years.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma would become the first state to allow the execution of inmates using nitrogen gas under a bill that overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives.
The House voted 85-10 on Tuesday for the bill by Oklahoma City Republican Rep. Mike Christian, who described the method as humane, painless and easy to administer. There was no debate against the bill, which now heads to the Senate.
Christian says the nitrogen would be administered to the inmate either by a "tent or some kind of secure mask."
On this edition of ST, we speak with Cat Warren, a university professor and former journalist who for several years had an admittedly strange hobby -- that is, she and her German shepherd, Solo, would often go searching for the dead. Solo, now retired, was a cadaver dog -- and what began as an effort to make the best of Solo's unruly energy and boundless enthusiasm eventually became, for our guest today, a quest to learn all she could about so-called "working" dogs, their handlers, and their trainers.
Presley Family Ministries gets approval for a unique, mixed-use development in West Tulsa County where not much has been built for decades. Dr. Richard Presley says plans for the nearly 22 acres at West 41st and the Gilcrease Expressway include homes, green space, two lakes, a community meeting area, and even a chapel.
He sees it as kind of a mini-gathering place for the Berryhill area. The development would take place in phases and isn’t scheduled for completion until 2020.
A Tulsa Public Schools bond issue isn’t the only matter Tulsa-area voters will consider tomorrow.
Money is at stake for the city of Sapulpa. Voters will consider bonds totaling $6.6 million spread among four propositions. Economic Development Director Ted Fisher says just over half will go toward mandated repairs to Sahoma Lake Dam and the city’s sewer system.
