This photo taken on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2012, near Frederick, Colo., shows an oil pump jack working on a property across from a subdivision. Colorado that week passed what it touted as one of the toughest statewide regulations of energy drilling in the nation, a sign of a growing backlash against an oil and gas boom that has moved from far-flung rural areas to densely-populated urban ones. The state's new regulations require a 500-foot setback from houses for all new energy projects and other regulations geared toward areas like the Denver suburbs that are increasingly being targeted for natural gas and oil drilling.
