I don't know where you got your information that the gas companies are leaving. They are coming back in full force. We have had many move into the Pine Creek area and gas industry traffic is worse than ever. I was told by several in the industry that we will not know this area come May, that so many new companies and gas workers will be hauled into the area to work. Yep, not hiring locals, bringing workers in. Just what we are going to need more gasholes running on the roads. To the author of this letter, I totally agree with you.

I want to make it clear that, I can only look at this as a non-land owner and renter, because that it what I am. I understand the complaints from land owners, I'm just saying that I'm not suffering from it so I can't really speak on that part of it with any real knowledge. I don't have a problem with the Gas Industries, not really, what I have a problem with is what their presence is doing to the rent prices. A lot of good people work for the gas industries and are using it as a way to put food on the table for their families and get things they didn't have the luxury to before.

As far as gas lines leaving, in large part that is true. Some of them that have left, are coming back, that is also true, but some of them that remained are now leaving to go drill oil.

"I heard 90% are packing up and leaving." - jeff33

You might want to check again. As the infrastructure and facilities get put into place to support the industry, they are slowly coming back.

The sad thing is men from all over the US left their families to come here because the industry promised them work that would last for 10 to 15 years.

"Your're right Mr. Reeder. I hope they can get their jobs back where you work."

Unlikely.

I have some friends from the area who quit their jobs to work for the industry and found out that the grass is not "Greener" on the other side, now their collecting unemployment.

Really? That is bad news for the guys at work who quit recently to go work for them.

It won't be long and they all will be gone. Natural gas prices are to low and it is not worth drilling. I heard 90% are packing up and leaving.
