I am a simple business/retail store owner in Montana. Observation is all I have to go by here. It is enough for me. The year 2011 was the worst as far as numbers go. This year is starting out below 2011. What I've notice is the people walking out of the store. Their heads are down and they do not make eye contact. In the hay days before 2008 1 in 10 would walkout without buying something. The numbers have just turned around and now 1 in 10 buys something. I do have to stay on my toes as every now and then someone from the Bakken will walk in. They buy big. God Bless the oil.
