API Poll: Pennsylvanians Want Energy Investment

gas drillingAccording to a poll from the American Petroleum Institute, residents of the Keystone State want to see increased funding for energy infrastructure.

The results of the survey showed that 94% of registered Pennsylvania voters agree that increased development of the country’s energy infrastructure would help create jobs in the U.S.; again, 94% say that increased production of domestic oil and natural gas resources could lead to more jobs in the U.S. 86% say increased development of the country’s energy infrastructure is good for American consumers and 90% say increased production of domestic oil and natural gas resources could help stimulate the economy.

As always, take the results of polls commissioned by interest groups with a grain of salt and in this case, API has serious financial stake in American and Pennsylvania-based energy. API-PA is a division of API, which represents all segments of America’s oil and natural gas industry The petroleum industry also supports 9.8 million U.S. jobs and 8% of the U.S. economy.

“Today’s poll shows strong majorities of Pennsylvania voters support more domestic oil and natural gas development, regardless of party affiliation,” said Stephanie Catarino Wissman, executive director of API-PA, “Forward-looking policies that allow the United States to capitalize on its bright energy future are imperative for this nation to realize its job creation and economic potential.

“The people of Pennsylvania get it; America’s economic future, the availability of affordable and reliable energy, depends on the policies created today.”

The American Petroleum Institute (API) and API-PA are running with these results in a new marketing campaign, using social media and traditional advertising

The study was conducted April 3-9, 2014 by telephone by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Petroleum Institute among 603 registered voters in Pennsylvania, with a sampling error of +/- 4%.

  1. “The results of the survey showed that 94% of registered Pennsylvania voters agree”

    94% don’t even agree on whether the Earth goes around the Sun or what day of the week it is.

    Even if people agree in improving energy infrastructure, that doesn’t mean they think the improvements should involve petroleum. Generating energy locally with wind/solar would improve the infrastructure as well.

    The statement “Today’s poll shows strong majorities of Pennsylvania voters support more domestic oil and natural gas development,” is total BS because the term “energy” doesn’t mean oil/gas.
