Voters Overwhelmingly Demand Independence from Foreign Oil; Favor Domestic Drilling

A recent telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters nationwide by the polling companyTM, inc. on behalf of FamilySecurityMatters.org shows that by nearly a 4-to-1 margin, Americans favor increasing domestic oil drilling (77% support; 18% oppose).

Moreover, 61% of respondents strongly backed tapping into U.S. oil reserves, and majorities from every demographic group surveyed backed domestic drilling, including 91% of Republicans, 73% of Independents and 67% of Democrats.

“These results show that Americans demand common-sense energy policies that both improve our national security by lessening our dependence on the oil provided by countries potentially hostile to American interests and lower gas prices for American families,” said Carol Taber President of FamilySecurityMatters.org, which commissioned the poll.  More from FamilySecurityMatters

Scream it from the rooftops – Call your senators and congressmen.  Call the White House.  Email, fax – whatever you have to do.  We must drill our own oil!

  1. Since oil is traded on the futures market, the presumption of increased supplies or stability drives down the price of oil. When Hurricane Katrina damaged the oil refineries in the the South, the price of oil went up because the supply was threatened. In the face of a decreased demand, the Saudis increased their oil supply to maintain the level of sales. The most basic rules of supply and demand are in place and we are not keeping up with them.

    What is worse is that the leaders in the House and Senate seemed more concerned with looking like they care about the problem instead of actually fixing it. The only member of the House that seems to be doing anything about it is Congressman Tim Murphy from Pennsylvania. He has a petition going that will be sent to the leaders of both parties in the House telling them to increase our domestic production and begin to secure our energy needs. The petition is at:

    It may seem like a small step, but any step in the right direction is better than not doing anything at all.
