2009 Energy IQ (Questions Only)

In comparing the new results to surveys from previous years, Harris found that Americans are more aware of how current policies limit domestic oil and natural gas production, but they also continue to subscribe to common, yet critical, misperceptions about how the industry operates and the energy we’ll need in the future. The survey also found that other misconceptions exist about U.S. oil company stock ownership and industry investment in alternative fuels.
