Oil & Gas Industry puts Houston on FORBES “Best Of” List
In the upcoming issue of FORBES, the magazine has its 14th annual ranking of The Best Places for Business and Careers. In it you will find our very own Houston ranked 20th! The primary reason for this favorable ranking is the oil and gas industry in Houston. According to FORBES, “oil and gas drive the Houston economy and are responsible for 50% of the jobs related to the export of goods and services outside the area.” As a result of such a strong economy, due in large part to the oil and gas industry, Houston was able to withstand the recent recession, and has been able to recover all the jobs that were initially lost in the recession. Only the metro areas of Houston and Washington D.C. have achieved this level of job recovery.
