Energy IQ Survey

This morning API released the results of its third annual “Energy IQ” survey, intended to gauge Americans’ knowledge about energy issues. Considering the gravity of some of the energy proposals being debated on Capitol Hill right now, the results are particularly striking.

While the survey revealed that Americans now recognize the United States will need more energy in the coming years, respondents vastly underestimated the amount of oil and natural gas that will be needed to meet that demand. Conversely, respondents overestimated the role that renewable energy sources will play in meeting future demand, the amount of oil the U.S. imports from the Middle East, and oil and natural gas industry earnings.
