There's a Hell, Michigan somewhere. I don't think it's too far. And based upon Michigan's weather, I would assume that Hell freezes over every single year.

thats what extractive industries do. they build up a local community (frequently with tax incentives or direct costs [roads, power grid] from the various governments - esp. in third world countries) and then move on when the resource is depleted beyond profitability. Frequently leaving not just depressed local economic conditions (since almost all $ left the community during the boom) but also terrible environmental problems as well.

well in the late 80's and early 90's we had pensoil and quaker state refineries but once they were bought out the plants got shut down and there went all the jobs. Now the biggest employer in our county is Wal-mart hahah
