People across our state are placing the blame for high gas prices solely on the backs of oil companies. In a new survey, the vast majority of people say the only way to bring prices down is to crack down on market manipulation.

79% of Coloradans say they favor a crackdown while 77% also say reducing oil consumption will help bring down prices.

Almost three-quarters surveyed say they want to stop taxpayer subsidies for oil companies.

The survey shows 70% support diversifying energy sources.
