Settlers came to get rich from the oil fields in cities like Tulsa, Ponca City, Bartlesville, and Oklahoma City. Oklahoma is the third largest gas producing state in the nation. Some famous people from Oklahoma include Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, and the All American Rejects. Oklahoma is coldest in January and warmest in July.
