Half a million Texas jobs added by oil and gas boom

Well, we KNOW where CA stands on all this.  If they could keep even ONE oil/gas based job from being formed, they would be besides themselves with joy.
Texas has garnered 45 percent of the nearly 1.3 million jobs created by new production from fields drilled with hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. Pennsylvania and California each got 8 percent of the new jobs.

... The boom has contributed $238 billion to the U.S. economy this year. By 2020, that contribuiton will grow to $416 billion, IHS CERA found. In Texas alone, government revenues from the new oil and gas plays are expected to be $22.168 billion this year, and $38.538 billion by 2030.
