Oregon's economic growth in the last year is second only to one state in the entire U.S.   

According to a new report just released, the beaver state has the second-fastest growing economy in the nation.

Oregon's gross domestic product totaled $186.2 billion in 2011, growing 4.7 percent from the previous year.

That rate more than triples the U.S average.

North Dakota ranks number one, due to a 7.6 percent gain from oil manufacturing.
