Americans want the United States to pick up its production of domestic energy using solar power, wind, and natural gas, according to a Gallup poll.

According to the study, which was released late in March, 76% of Americans want the U.S. to put more emphasis on solar, 71% want more emphasis on wind, and 65% prefer an emphasis on natural gas.

Less than half of those surveyed want to emphasize the production of oil, and a little more than a third want to put more effort into nuclear power production. The study shows that coal is the least favored form of domestic production.
