Fracing has created nearly two million highly paid jobs, with the expectation of three million more by 2020. State and federal tax revenues from hydraulic fracturing have grown to $85 billion in 2012, expanding through $1 trllion by 2035. Fracing now represents more than 3% of the nations GDP, as the revolution spreads to other industries. Fracing is putting America on the road towards energy independence, as crude oil imports have dropped by more than 40% from outside North America. Learn the frac story - the strengths and challenges this new world of energy presents to each of us.
