Opinions Changing on Energy

by William Yeatman on July 7, 2008

According to UPI, the latest nationwide survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press finds that half of the respondents now support drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, up from 42 percent in February, 2008. Changing attitudes toward energy were most demonstrated in results showing that the proportion saying it is more important to increase energy conservation and regulation has declined by 10 points, from 55 percent to 45 percent. By contrast, nearly half (47 percent) of Americans now rate energy exploration as the more important priority, up from 35 percent in February. The findings came from a poll conducted June 18-29, 2008 among 2,004 adults.
