Thousands Gather In Harrisburg For Natural Gas Drilling Rally

Thousands of natural gas drilling supporters crowded the State Capitol in Harrisburg on Tuesday. The Marcellus Shale coalition says 245-thousand direct and indirect jobs have been created statewide in the gas boom-despite the recession. There were several protestors as well, saying jobs aren't worth our clean drinking water. All four democratic candidates for governor are promising higher taxes on Marcellus Shale Drillers. Pennsylvania's gas industry could be worth 15 billion dollars this year alone.
