Here's Another Small Pennsylvania City That Has Lost More Than Half of Its Population Since 1930

I drove through Oil City many times on U.S. 62, particularly during the year I attended graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh.

Oil City was also part of the sports conference in which my high school participated:
  • Corry Beavers
  • Franklin Knights
  • Meadville Bulldogs
  • Oil City Oilers
  • Titusville Rockets
  • Warren Dragons
Naturally, whenever we traveled to Franklin, we saw numerous signs exhorting the Knights to "slay the Dragons".  And when the Knights came to town, we were determined to "singe" them.
