From the American Petroleum Institute on Thursday:
Harrisburg, Pa., August 14, 2014 ─ Strong bipartisan majorities of registered Pennsylvania voters support increased development of U.S. energy infrastructure and will back candidates who support producing more U.S. oil and natural gas, according to a new poll released by API.
“Pennsylvania voters, regardless of party affiliation, want more American made energy,” said Stephanie Catarino Wissman, executive director of API’s Associated Petroleum Industries of Pennsylvania. “Voters are more likely to support candidates who encourage smart energy policy that will increase investments in the commonwealth and increase energy and job security for Pennsylvanians in the future.
“People in the ‘Keystone State’ recognize the abundance of energy that lies in the Marcellus Shale and want to capitalize on the opportunity to benefit all Americans, by investing in the commonwealth’s ability to transport natural gas to consumers nationwide.”
The state-wide telephone poll, conducted for API by Harris Poll among 608 registered voters in Pennsylvania, also found that:
The Associated Petroleum Industries of Pennsylvania is a division of API, which represents all segments of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Its more than 600 members produce, process, and distribute most of the nation’s energy. The industry also supports 9.8 million U.S. jobs and 8 percent of the U.S. economy.
The study was conducted July 29 – August 3, 2014 by telephone by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Petroleum Institute among 608 registered voters in Pennsylvania, with a sampling error of +/- 4%. A full methodology is available upon request.
"What America is Thinking on Energy Issues" is a public opinion series provided by API, offering data to inform policy discussions and ensure policymakers and others know Americans' perspectives on key energy issues.
