(WDAY TV) -- The other economic area exploding in that oil boom -- permits for oversize or overweight trucks.

Those have increased more than 500 percent in 5 years. 18 counties in the oil patch are expected to fetch more than 4-million dollars in permit fees this fiscal year.

That money covers administrative costs and helps authorities track shipments.

Taxes from oil production is then used to fix the roads.

The price per permit hasn't changed in more than a decade, but later this month a group is looking to review it.
