Lawmakers in DC, not Big Oil or the War in Iraq, are now the top scapegoats for high prices at the pump.  But perhaps the  most interesting result from this survey is that a whopping 81% of those who responded want the U.S. government to allow more domestic drilling

Americans are feeling the impact of record gas prices in their pocketbooks. Nearly half of those surveyed said they are saving less, and 24% said they cut back on essentials like food and health care costs.

As a result, 90% of those surveyed support an increase in alternative energy development, and 81% want the U.S. government to allow more drilling on and off our nation’s shores. Americans also favored conservation measures, with 83% saying they supported tax incentives for alternate transportation.
