Recently, one survey found voters throughout Colorado are for the development of oil and gas. In fact, 68% of Coloradoans state they would be more inclined to vote for a person who supports the development of such industries, according to the Colorado Petroleum Council, who performed the survey.
Sources state that because energy, through the production of gas and oil, drives the American economy, the industries have been a particular focus for people across the United States. Many believe that if Colorado chooses to focus on increasing efforts to develop these two industries, the state can create more jobs and increase economic growth.
From the survey, representatives of CPC understood the people of Colorado truly understand the energy policy. They grasp the idea that the more the state can produce domestic energy, the lower the cost of such resources will be for consumers throughout America.
