BLOG: OKC ranks fifth for economic output 

Technology and energy. Those are the two economic sectors that are paying off the most for America's cities.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis recently released its list of the top cities for economic output as gross domestic output and those performing the best are cities with strong energy and high tech sectors. Oklahoma City, which has a large energy sector, ranked fifth with 3.9 percent growth from 2012.

"In addition to Houston and San Jose, the tech hubs of Denver, Raleigh and the energy hub of Oklahoma City round out the top five fastest growing large metros," wrote Richard Florida in a post for the Atlantic's City Lab blog. "The top seven large metros all registered rates of economic growth more than double the national average."
