Why does oil and gas have to be listed together?Oil wells in a signed and fenced off area are O.K. with me,that is mostly what people expect and can live with,with proper funds for dismantle on hold so they don't just sit around after production ends ,or pollute our land?Gas fracturing is not oil wells.Gas fracturing is not a proven safe operation and is proving to be very harmful.Just look it up on the net.So I voted no,when it would be yes if it was just oil wells that were safely run.Your question just sneaks fracturing in the back door,like its always been there,like oil wells have.Fracturing is bad,very bad.Enough to make me vote no against oil wells also if they are going to cover for that fracking.

Those of you in favor of all of this gas&oil exploration need to take a quick moment of your time to watch this video. But if you're NOT worried about being able to light your tap water on FIRE(yes, straight from the tap), then I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

The burning tap water could be done long before gas fracking. Some places in PA are famous for it.

When I saw this poll earlier in the week my first thought was that if you can get 55% of this community, with its radical environmentalists, to favor more drilling then it must be time to fire up the rigs. No pun intended.
