In 2014 alone, the oil and natural gas industry generated $31.7 billion for Colorado’s economy. That’s over 102,700 high-paying jobs, $1.2 billion in tax revenue for things that are important to Colorado – like schools, parks and roads.
COLORADO WITHOUT FRACKING
Anti-fracking measures would damage Colorado’s economy and eliminate:
- 102,700 jobs
- $12 billion in gross domestic product (GDP)
- $1.2 billion in tax revenue for local and state governments
- $1,250 in personal annual income
The ripple effect would demolish supply-chain industries that support oil and gas development and wreck economic sectors, such as real estate, retailers and home builders.
