Cushing is located in Payne County, Oklahoma, 70 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The city was established after the Land Run of 1891 by William “Billy Rae” Little. It was named for Marshall Cushing, private secretary to U.S. Postmaster General John Wanamaker. An oil boom that began in 1912 led to the city’s development as a refining center
Today, Cushing is a major trading hub for crude oil, and is one of the largest and most important crude oil storage hubs on the planet. Delivery for West Texas Intermediate crude is taken here, priced for Nymex contracts and stored before it’s shipped to refineries. Cushing’s nickname is “The Pipeline Crossroads of the World.”
