Audio: Energy Boom Spurs Growth West Of Mississippi

AM 820 News anchor Robert Pankau spoke to ABC News correspondent Scott Goldberg about the growth of America’s cities.

America’s cities are still growing, with the population boom fueled by people picking up and moving to find jobs in energy production across the oil- and gas-rich areas west of the Mississippi River. New 2013 census information released Thursday shows that cities are the fastest-growing parts of the United States, and a majority of the metro areas showing that growth are located in or near the oil- and gas-rich fields of the Great Plains and Mountain West.
