Fossil Fuels are the Most Hated Industry in the US

Americans may not like government, but according to a new poll, they hate the oil and gas industry most of all. A new Gallup poll asked thousands of Americans how they feel about 25 of the nation's largest industries -- positive, neutral or negative. A total of 61 percent of those polled gave the fossil fuel industry a negative rating

To rank the most hated industries, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 10 private sector industries with the most overall negative views among the 25 industries Gallup included in its annual Work and Education survey. They also reviewed the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ASCI), which employs a multiequation econometric model to score industries on a 0-100 scale.

With the oil and gas industry being the most hated industry in the country, it is high time that America removes its support for oil subsidies.
