Hydraulic fracturing has helped the economy in some ways. For example fracking has created over 60,000 new jobs such as drillers, pipe fitters, electricians and engineers for our communities. In Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Texas together have enough natural gas to power the entire United States for 110 years because of fracking. In some ways fracking is good for the economy like for example, it gives all Americans a clean, inexpensive source of fuel, and helps the growth of the economy. Keep in mind fracking has also caused earthquakes, pollution and health issues for humans, but in the early 1980s, there was so much natural gas that all gas prices were reduced. All of that natural gas came from hydraulic fracturing or fracking.
