What America is Thinking on Energy Issues – Poll: Large majorities of Nevada voters support U.S. investments in oil and natural gas

WASHINGTON, April 17, 2014 – Strong bipartisan majorities of registered Nevada voters support increased investment in energy infrastructure, according to a new poll API is unveiling as part of a campaign highlighting the voices of Americans.

“Today’s poll shows strong majorities of American voters support more domestic oil and natural gas development, regardless of party affiliation,” said API Chief Economist John Felmy. “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 American public gets it; America’s economic future, the availability of affordable and reliable energy, depends on the policies created today.”

API will use social mediaadvertising and its grassroots resources of more than 24 million Americans to communicate the importance of America’s energy future to members of Congress, the administration and elected officials at every level of government.

The telephone poll, conducted for API by Harris Poll among 603 registered voters, also found that:

  • 91 percent of registered Nevada voters agree that increased development of the country’s energy infrastructure would help create jobs in the U.S. 
  • 93 percent say that increased production of domestic oil and natural gas resources could lead to more jobs in the U.S.
  • 90 percent say increased development of the country’s energy infrastructure is good for American consumers. 
  • 86 percent say increased production of domestic oil and natural gas resources could help stimulate the economy.

API 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.

Methodology 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 Nevada, 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.
