As people are looking for ways to save money, one man in Indiana has found help right in his own backyard.
Greg Losh is sitting on top of an oil well.
A local oil company contacted him after they discovered oil in the area.
And now, Losh is producing three barrels of oil a day.
With oil around $130 a barrel, experts predict it will turn into a big money maker.
"If you have one well in your backyard, probably over the course of a year you'd be earning tens of thousands of dollars," Professor Amy Myers Jaffe said.
Experts say drilling for oil requires a great deal of technical knowledge, and caution this is not something you should do on your own.
