It's funny that the idea of leasing land is deemed or said to be less than desirable during the "recession." I find that to be foolish talk. If this were true, much would be different. Gas prices would continue to decline or stay stagnant everywhere, but by no means is that the case. $4000 an acre, these companies should feel bad for the way in which they are trying to 'rape' of their people's land and finances.
