With prices so high, everybody and their brother is out looking for oil and they are finding it.  There are a lot of oil finding and pumping/extraction methods that are only viable at high prices.

I read of folks in Pennsylvania spending maybe $50,000 or $100,000 to reopen old wells thought to be pumped out.  They may only pump a few thousand barrels, but at today's prices you don't need much to make money.  There are wells only producing a few barrels a week that are left to pump.  I don't see how they cover electricity and maintenance, but they still let them pump.
