Oil Prices and the Palisades

Now (that oil prices have dropped) we should . . . question the economics of drilling in Pacific Palisades. Oil prices have dropped from over $30 per barrel to less than $12. Royalties to homeowners and the supposed largess to the city would decline accordingly. Is it still worth selling our Palisades environment to the Occidental carpetbaggers?
