Fracking the vast Monterey shale formation underneath California could start the equivalent of a new gold rush in the state, reports Fox Business Network.
"A new report now says fracking could create anywhere from half a million new jobs in California by 2015, even 2.5 million jobs by 2020, plus a bundle in the way of state tax revenue. That would help lower the unemployment rate, now trending at 10%, worse than Rhode Island and right up there with Nevada," Fox reports.
