13. Correct

Nationally, oil is not nearly the drain on the economy it once was. It's additive, overall.

Now, does that make filling your tank less painful? Not particularly, no.

But as much as my adopted home of New Mexico loves to complain about "white platers" (what they, and I guess me now) call Texans -- white license plate -- the oilfield people are the lifeblood of the small town in which I live. But for them, the entire town would close.
