Natrona County Exceeds in Creating Jobs

The latest state labor statistics show the Casper area leading the way with the most new jobs in Wyoming. 

The figures are from the second quarter of last year, but show that more than a thousand new jobs were created in Natrona County. 

We spoke with some experts in the fields driving these jobs and they say the numbers should continue to steadily grow. 

Oil and gas as well as mining are the driving forces behind the increased numbers in Natrona County. 

Out of the over 1,000 jobs created this quarter, more than 700 were in those industries.
