Quinnipiac University released its latest poll on Thursday and one of the poll questions concerned the hotly debated topic of hydrofracking upstate. Opinions are split as to what direction the State should take in terms pursuing this as an energy source. What do you think?

Some people say there should be drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale because of the economic benefits. Others say there should not be drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale because of the environmental impact. Which comes closer to your point of view?
