Making Money

Oil and gas account for a large chunk of New Mexico’s economy. The state is the third leading oil and gas produced in the country, producing more than 10 percent of the natural gas in America.

The federal government also adds to the economy, as it has three air force bases and an Army base in the state.

Tourism also plays a large part, with people coming to take in the Hispanic and Native American cultures, as well as the hot balloon rides. Consider opening a hotel or travel service (link) franchise here!
