75% of voters say U.S. not doing enough to develope oil resources

This week at the Aspen Ideas Festival, President Obama adviser David Axelrod told an audience, “People have gotten the message that the era of cheap gasoline is over.” That may be, but according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, the vast majority of American people also believe that the United States is not doing enough to develop its own natural resources.

Rasmussen found that a full 75 percent of voters do not believe that the United States is doing enough to develop its own gas and oil resources. Only 19 percent disagreed. The margin between what policy is preferable, reducing demand for oil or increasing supplies, was tighter. Forty-nine percent of voters say that increasing the supply of oil by finding new sources is a better energy policy. Only 42 percent reducing demand by cutting gas and oil consumption.
