Commentary
Respondents in this lower mainland poll of British Columbians suggests that a clear majority of British Columbians want the provincial government to impose some type of policy (regulation) with respect to the price of gasoline in the province.
Approximately one-third of respondents are of the opinion that gas price fluctuations (and prices) are due in part to more nefarious assumptions about the conduct of oil companies.
The BC Liberals hold a marginal lead over the BC NDP among respondents in the lower mainland of the province. The leaderless BC Green Party attracts nearly one out of seven decided respondents, while Green and "Other" attracts approximately one in five respondents in this ROBBINS poll.
