A new national poll on gas issues shows voters overwhelming support state fracking moratoriums and blame exports for gas price rises.
A survey of 1,421 Australian residents, conducted by The Australia Institute through Research Now between 17 and 26 September 2017, showed twice as many support (49%) a moratorium on fracking than oppose it (24%). (see table 1 below)
Additionally, respondents were asked if their state should increase its renewable energy target. Three quarters of respondents (74%) support an increased RET, and just 17% opposed.
