Remote Williston, N.D., is the scene of a modern-day gold rush -- black gold in the form of oil deposits. Workers are flocking to the area for high-paying oil field jobs. The hours are long, the work is hard, stress is high and housing is nearly impossible to come by. The city hasn't invested in infrastructure for new housing since losing a $20 million investment after the last boom went bust.
