Support for US energy infrastructure

Hydrocarbon Engineering,


According to a new poll released by the American Petroleum Institute (API), strong bipartisan majorities of registered voters across a number of US states support increased development of US infrastructure and will back candidates who support producing more US oil and natural gas.

These voters, regardless of party affiliation, want more American made energy, according to API representatives. Also, it has been said that voters are more likely to support leadership that invests in energy infrastructure to produce and transport more of America’s energy. These voters, according to representatives, recognise the importance of producing more oil and natural gas in the US and how that will create new America jobs and strengthen the nation’s energy security.

The poll was carried out for the API by Harris Poll.
