      • In parched states, fracking's thirst grows.

        According to the petroleum industry, most new wells in this country now use fracking to coax an average of 250 barrels of oil or 1.3 million cubic feet of natural gas from the ground per day. But that can't happen without water – about 3 million to 8 million gallons per well before extraction begins.
