Natural gas prices have skyrocketed in recent months thanks to strong global demand. Today, Marketplace’s Andy Uhler takes us to a village in northwest Louisiana where many landowners signed away their mineral rights to drillers. The resulting infusion of cash revived the local economy but has come at an environmental cost for some in the area. We’ll also digest a muddled jobs report in the Weekly Wrap, discuss whether job growth in the warehouse sector is here to stay and tackle the frustrations of on-and-off return-to-office plans.
