    I remember around 2010 oil field and sand hauling on camps was really popular, and then people stopped talking about it till recently. Why?

    You are trolling right?

    If not, take 5 seconds and think about the price of gas/diesel

    If refineries use mostly domestic then why do foreign exports wreck barrel cost?

    Because the price is on the WORLD market, not just domestic. If you could sell your product for X at home, but X+Y abroad, you would sell it abroad, provided Y>0. If Y<0, you would sell it all here.

    Simple supply and demand. The world's oil price drags our domestic price with it because the producers would just sell it elsewhere when they can get more money for it, making our supply more scarce.

    I've actually been up north for awhile. Not making Permian money but enough to pay the bills and I needed home time for awhile to take care of some stuff. I'm in line now waiting to get a load back out to Midland and already talked to our terminal out west so I'll be back to making the big bucks soon enough. I already upgraded my BMW. If things keep up out west maybe next year I can trade in for a Porsche.
