Thought Piece The following side by side comparisons between New York’s Southern Tier and Pennsylvania Northern Tier demonstrates that unconventional oil/hydraulic fracturing has become the center of a budding US economic renaissance, because it has several separate economic benefits: natural gas, tight oil and feed-stone, all of which cut the cost of production for all goods [...]
