    A view of a depot for machinery and equipment used in oil exploration on the coast of Port Stanley March 13, 2012. Few people are tracking the ups and downs of the British companies looking for oil off the disputed Falkland Islands as closely as islanders themselves. The search for black gold in South Atlantic waters claimed by Argentina has even persuaded some residents to dabble in the stock market as they bet on a windfall that could guarantee their small community's prosperity for decades to come.

    This Feb. 28, 2012 photo shows an oil well near Sidney, Mont. Sidney is experiencing a boom spurred by companies seeking to extract oil from the massive Bakken formation beneath western North Dakota and eastern Montana. More than 16 million barrels of crude are now being pumped every month from the massive Bakken oil field beneath eastern Montana. But Sidney's new-found prosperity doesn't dull the sting of the recent kidnapping and apparent murder of a local teacher, Sherry Arnold, who authorities allege was snatched from a Sidney, Mont., street.
