By Keystone Clearwater Solutions -

Pennsylvanians and Americans “overwhelmingly support” the safe and proven use of hydraulic fracturing to produce clean-burning natural gas, according to a national survey by Robert Morris University’s Polling Institute. Here are key poll takeaways:

  • Support for fracing has also increased significantly – moving from 42.3% in 2013 to 55.9% majority today.
  • Additionally, support for fracing in Americans’ own hometowns has also seen increased support.  Today, 49.2% would support (strongly or somewhat) fracing in their own hometowns – up from 40.0% in late 2013.
  • Other important findings include:
    • Fracing can help the U.S. economy – 73.3% agree
    • Fracing will help the U.S. move to energy independence – 68.9% agree
    • The U.S. should begin exporting some of the resulting natural gas – 51.6% agree
