Fracking has made Texas county the country's richest

API SmartBrief | May 23, 2017

McMullen County, Texas, has become the richest in the US, with an average adjusted gross income of $303,717, thanks to hydraulic fracturing. County landowners make more money from oil and natural gas royalties than from their day jobs, while residents who don't own land also benefit because fracking creates stable jobs and has helped the county improve its infrastructure and services.
