Business Insider -- "Ten years ago Williston, North Dakota was a quiet agricultural town with a population around 12,000. Today, because of oil prices and drilling advancements, Williston is home to America's biggest oil boom and its residents number over 30,000.
Home prices are soaring, unemployment is close to zero and people from around the country are flocking here for jobs where the starting pay can easily exceed $100,000. Williston has already received lots of media attention, but what I saw when visiting last week was stranger than I could have imagined."
