Hightower said it, I said it, skimble said it, Fortune said it years ago:

water is the new oil.

Now the Times is saying it:

Angry West Texans and some state officials are demanding a halt to a deal that allows a group of politically well-connected Midland oilmen to tap the desert and sell billions of gallons of water from the state's public reserves.
The process seems to be going a little faster than the Times thinks.

Much more here, esp. here.

12/15: Yes! magazine says it [via Alternet].
