Poll: What America is Thinks About Natural Gas Exports

Poll results from Harris Interactive (hired by the American Petroleum Institute) on American attitudes toward exporting natural gas. The poll was conducted in mid-May 2013 and found a large majority believe exports of natural gas will create jobs in the U.S., make this country more secure and reduce the trade deficit.
