List says Ohio can gain from drilling
A recent study released by IHS Global Insight shows that Ohio and Pennsylvania have the most to gain when it comes to drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
Ohio could see as many as 4,500 jobs and Pennsylvania as many as 5,200.
Gas-drilling stopped after the Deepwater Horizon incident last summer.
The report says 230,000 jobs and an increase of $44 billion in gross domestic product could result from drilling in the Gulf.
