In this episode of the Breakout with Newt Gingrich podcast, Newt discusses how the
United States is poised to become one of the world’s top producers of energy,
specifically, a leading producer of oil in the near future. States like North Dakota are
undergoing an energy boom that has seen the unemployment rate in the state drop
to less than three percent. Thousands of people have flocked to North Dakota to take
advantage of the high paying jobs, many of which currently pay six figures per year and
up. The potential for a breakout in energy also leaves the United States less dependent
on foreign countries for sources of energy which will have implications on America’s
national security policies in the 21st century.
