Will falling oil prices affect DeWitt cities, businesses

Not only will it have an impact on private businesses but also government agencies such as county and cities that depend on the tax revenue to maintain roads and operations.

According to a study released by financial site MoneyRates.com, some states will feel the falling price of oil more than others. The five states that will have the greatest impact are North Dakota, Wyoming, Alaska, Oklahoma and New Mexico. The study stated that these states will lose anywhere from $1.38 to $11 billion. The greater impact still lies in how it will affect the workforce due to the percentage of those employed by the oil industry.
