What Bert Has To Say About Odessa Metro Area

Odessa received its name from homesick Russian railroad laborers in the 1880s, and until recently was combined with Midland to form one metropolitan area. Like Midland, the economic base is concentrated mainly in the oil and gas industry and employment prospects are mainly dependent on that industry. Recently though, the high cost of oil is spurring new exploration and development so the local economy is very vibrant.
