West Virginia's Oil and Gas Expo was held last week in Morgantown, W.Va., and turned out to be the biggest and most successful to date.  The one-day event had more than 300 exhibitors and more than 2,000 attendees!  

The expo focused on the future of the oil and gas industry and how the industry is boosting West Virginia's economy.  Exhibitors were able to display the latest products and services to those in attendance and the expo gave businesses the chance to network.  Next year's expo is already planned and will be back to Morgantown October 7, 2015.
