Oklahoma is the third-largest gas producer in the country, the fifth-largest oil producer, and is home to both the first oil well in the country and the only capital city with an oil well under it; obviously, energy is a primary source of employment here. Today, new sources of energy, particularly wind, are also becoming important in new job creation, thanks to producers of wind energy and numerous manufacturers of components for wind energy production being located there. Plus, it's home to aerospace innovation; Boeing and Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma's largest single site employer, are found there. Thanks to several 100-percent digital, fiber-optic-linked communities, telecommunications is an important industry.
