Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Cushing is a city in Payne County, Oklahoma, United States. The population was 8,371 at the 2000 census.


Cushing is a major hub in oil supply connecting the Gulf Coast suppliers with northern consumers. Cushing is famous as a price settlement point for West Texas Intermediate on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and has been cited as the most significant trading hub for crude oil in North America. Signs made out of pipe and a valve on the major highways into town proclaim Cushing to be the "Pipeline Crossroads of the World", and the town is surrounded by several tank farms.
