As far as West Texas' large cities go, the oil downtown continues to create some economic woes for both Midland and Odessa. While both cities saw their June 2021 Sales Tax Allocation increase compared to June 2020, both cities are still down on their Year-to-Date totals.

Lubbock had an amazing 35% increase in sales tax revenue when comparing June 2020 to June 2021. Wichita Falls and Amarillo were in similar situations with their 33% and 28%, respective increases.
