Fact #423: May 8, 2006
Opinions on Hydrogen Fueling Stations
About one-quarter of the students and the general public who were surveyed on their knowledge of hydrogen said that they would feel frightened or uneasy about having hydrogen sold at their local gas station. Less than 10% of the two other groups surveyed (State and Local Government officials and potential large-scale end users) indicated that hydrogen at a local station would make them uneasy.
|Pleased or at ease||Frightened or uneasy||Don't know / no opinion|
|Students (12–17 years old)||37%||28%||35%|
|State & Local Government Officials||88%||7%||5%|
* The End Users category includes persons involved with transportation services, businesses needing uninterrupted power supplies, and industries with large power requirements.
