2009 Energy IQ (Questions and Answers)

Published by Energy Tomorrow
The third annual Energy IQ survey, conducted for the American Petroleum Institute (API) by Harris Interactive®, comes as a new administration and Congress are pursuing energy and climate policies that will determine America’s economic competitiveness for years to come.

In comparing the new results to surveys from previous years, Harris found that Americans are more aware of how current policies limit domestic oil and natural gas production, but they also continue to subscribe to common, yet critical, misperceptions about how the industry operates and the energy we’ll need in the future.

The survey also found that other misconceptions exist about U.S. oil company stock ownership and industry investment in alternative fuels. For more information, read the full Energy IQ survey and test your energy knowledge.
