    Yesterday the AP published a story on the cancellation of an air route between Houston and Stavanger, Norway's oil and gas capital. Appropriately named the "oil line," the airline SAS said the downturn in oil and gas has obviated the need for the flight.

    Interestingly, Houston is home to one of the largest collection of Norwegians outside of Norway, according to multiple reports. The Scandinavian country maintains an embassy in Washington and three consulate generals in the US: Washington, San Francisco and Houston, according to Norway.org.

    According to one oil and gas industry executive, the cost of a flight to Midland from Houston is much reduced lately. It's likely similar types of routes to other locations are likewise feeling the pain of the downturn: Houston to Denver or Houston to Calgary. .:.
