The oil patch city of Hobbs in southeastern New Mexico, riding high on the energy boom, was the eighth fastest-growing “micropolitan area” in the country from mid-2012 to mid-2013, according to a recent report by the Census Bureau.
Hobbs, whose population grew by 2.9 percent over the 12-month period, was among cities in or near the Great Plains that dominated the fastest-growing lists of metropolitan and micropolitan areas.
A common thread among most of these cities was their connection to extractive industries, primarily oil and gas.
“The energy boom on the Plains ... (has) attracted job seekers from around the country,” said Census Bureau Director John H. Thompson in a prepared statement in the report.
