A poll of 500 people by Colmar Brunton for Greenpeace.
Respondents were told that oil prices would rise steadily as cheaper oil supplies ran out.
They were asked if they thought the Government should:
- Invest now in developing public transport and alternatives to petrol and diesel for New Zealand – 72%
- Allow consumers and companies to find or develop their own alternative transport methods and fuels when they consider petrol and diesel prices have become too high – 24%
