Even though Big Spring is comprised almost entirely of small, decrepit shacks, the cost of housing has skyrocketed in the face of the oil boom. Homes like this one can cost up to $1,000 per month to rent. Even with high wages, many oil workers struggle to keep up with the increasing cost of housing. Many companies pay for their workers to live in motels.
