To Drill Or Not To Drill For Oil

A new Gallup poll says the majority of Americans favor drilling for oil in the U.S.

Gasoline prices are breaking records day after day.  People are planning their driving more strategically by not making special trips out.  Companies and schools in some places are trimming five day weeks down to four.  UPS plans their routes to make fewer left turns because waiting to turn uses more gas. 
 
Clearly, the high price of gas is affecting Americans.  Is it affecting them enough to encourage drilling for oil in the U.S.? 
 
A new Gallup poll says yes.
 
The poll results posted on Gallup.com on May 28, say 57% of respondents favor "drilling in U.S. coastal and wilderness areas now off limits."  41% oppose the idea.
