DRILL JOE, DRILL! New Poll Shows Majority of Voters Want More Oil and Gas Drilling

Published on

With gas prices hitting record highs on Tuesday, Americans are fed up more than ever at the pump and urge President Joe Biden to start drilling now!

According to a new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports, the majority of Americans are all for the expansion of oil and gas drilling; and with the average cost of gas hitting $4.40 a gallon, we’re not surprised.

A majority of likely voters (60%) favor a law that would drastically increase oil and gas drilling in the United States, including 47% who would “strongly favor” such a law. About a third (30%) would oppose a law to increase drilling, while 11% are not sure.

These are some of the results of a new national telephone and online survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute that finds that 82% of likely U.S. voters are concerned about rising energy and gasoline prices, including 60% who are “very concerned.” Only 14% aren’t concerned about the rising price of energy.

In the survey, 52% of voters believe Congress and President Joe Biden should focus more on increasing oil and gas drilling to help reduce energy prices, but 34% think the policy focus should be more on limiting carbon dioxide emissions in an attempt to reduce climate change.

“When push comes to shove, polls consistently show energy and economic security trump climate change for a majority of the public when asked which is more important,” said H. Sterling Burnett, director of Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environmental Policy at the Heartland Institute. “Oil and gas remain, for the foreseeable future, vital to maintaining our present standard of living and lifestyles and to ensure continued economic and national security. This Heartland/Rasmussen poll indicates the public understands that fundamental fact.”
