An oil tanker rolls down U.S. Highway 87 toward Cuero. The recent boom in the area caused by drilling in the Eagle Ford Shale can be seen in the rig traffic traveling through town 24 hours a day. "I remember, as a little girl, (my grandfather) saying, 'the oil is here, they just need to come and get it,'" DeWitt County District Clerk Tabeth Gardner said about the Eagle Ford Shale drilling in Cuero.
