An opinion poll of 1001 people in Germany has found that 61% of respondents would prefer Russia as a gas supplier instead of the US, with 13% nominating the US as their preferred choice. The results are interesting in light of the US’s ambition to export more LNG and the political tensions between the USA, Europe and Russia, with none of the relationships at the moment being straight forward. Within Europe itself there is probably a wide range of opinions also, where countries such as Poland and the Baltic States may differ in their stances as compared to Germany. Public opinion may have some influence on future decision making.
