YES YOU READ RIGHT! Dallas, Texas hoping to ban natural gas drilling

Dallas hoping to ban natural gas drilling by, December 11, 2013
While there is an oil and gas boom all around North Texas, there is not a single natural gas well in Dallas and new rules may make sure it never happens. The city council votes Wednesday on new regulations. Some members want a 1,500 foot buffer between wells and homes. That would be a virtual ban. In August, the council rejected a plan for more than 50 wells in northwest Dallas. [Emphasis added]
