On Friday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton joined the broadcast to talk about how Texas energy is faring early in 2018, with the national economy showing continued strong growth.

About the oil industry's current favorable climate Sitton said,

When it comes to the price of oil, $65/barrel is starting to feel pretty good to people...People feel like it's a stable market that we're going to be in for a while. So [there is] a lot of optimism right now.
