What does oil and gas drilling mean for you and your community?
Utah Public Radio is interested in discovering how the oil and gas industry boom is affecting regions of the country. Sharing your responses with us will help Utah Public Radio report on the effects of oil boomtowns.
Oil and gas industries have been rising in the United States. Employment in the oil and gas industry has increased by 40 percent in the past seven years. That has led to dramatic growth in many regions around the country. Duchesne County in Utah, for example, is the second fastest growing county (compared to counties of similar size) in the United States. Utah Public Radio wants to hear about how you're experiencing the boom in your part of the country.
Has it affected your community positively or negatively? Do you or someone you know commute long distances for oil or gas jobs? Are you noticing more people coming to your town?
