Oil and Gas

The San Juan Basin which stretches over much of this part of New Mexico and into southwestern Colorado, including areas of the Navajo Nation and its fringes accounts for about 7 percent of the gas supply of the United States, helping to make New Mexico the second-largest gas-producing state after Texas. Despite such abundance, most Navajos, whether living on the reservation or on land allotted by the federal government, still use firewood to heat their homes and to cook their meals; they are often too poor to afford gas and often, it is not even available where they live.
