What Bert Has To Say About Oklahoma City Metro Area

Oklahoma City, the capital and largest city in the state, is a major center for the oil industry and related manufacturing. For most of its life “OKC” has been considered a fairly dull city located in a dull part of the country, but that is changing. The last oil bust in the 1990s and the 1995 Murrah Federal Building bombing tragedy seemed to spark something in the city, and it has undergone a major renaissance, particularly in its downtown areas funded in part by a well-supported sales tax initiative.
