A new Yale University research survey reveals that Americans overwhelmingly believe that the United States is too dependent on imported oil. The survey of 1,000 adults nationwide shows a vast majority of the public also wants to see government action to develop new "clean" energy sources, including solar and wind power as well as hydrogen cars.
Conducted on behalf of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, the survey found that fully 92% say dependence on imported oil is a serious problem, with 68 percent saying it is a very serious problem.
So then, 68 Percent of Americans believe imported oil is a very serious problem. Meanwhile, 65% of the country is dissatisfied with Bush on his handling of the economy. What an extraordinarily odd coincidence! Perhaps it is merely a statistical flutter, like that business with the “vote” in Ohio.
What will Americans get next, from Republican leadership presently nailing down a massive highway bill, as well as disbursing cash money payouts to the oil and gas industry -- an industry not known to be lacking in cash money of late?
