Oil Legends Honored

Two East Texans were honored Thursday at the East Texas Oil Legends luncheon put on by the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers.

A.P. Merritt Sr. Of Kilgore and James Ewbank of Tyler were the recipients. Ewbank, a 50-year veteran of oil and gas exploration and production spoke to us today about the current market.

"This is about the fourth boom that I have lived through. This is the most long lasting and the strangest boom that I have ever survived. I hope we don't screw this one up like we have in the past," said Mr. Ewbank.

He said he sees stabilization in the future and that he expects we see a top on gas prices very soon.
