Tracking the Public Pulse: 65% of Americans say energy issues important
65% of Americans responding to a new poll by the University of Texas said that energy is a very important issue to them. The poll also found strong support among consumers for increased production of energy from domestic sources, particularly natural gas and renewables. Interestingly, more than half of the poll’s respondents (62%) had not heard of, or were unfamiliar with, the practice of hydraulic fracturing (fracking).

The University of Texas at Austin’s Energy Poll reflects the views of 2,371 Americans surveyed during March 5-16, 2012. Launched in 2011, this new poll, created by the McCombs School of Business, is conducted twice a year to “provide an objective, authoritative look at consumer attitudes and perspectives on key energy issues.” For the full report, visit www.UTenergypoll.utexas.edu
