Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 10, 2004 Â As temperatures around the nation begin to drop, a Duffey Communications survey of national business and political leaders entitled the Executive Visionaries Forecast reveals that the majority of U.S. executives are concerned about future energy availability.
When asked how much of an impact energy development and fuel supply will have on their business or industry in the next 20 years, 55% of respondents indicated that these issues will have a major impact. Only 20% stated that future energy availability would have a minor impact on their business, while 25% remained neutral about the issue.
ÂSpeculation about future fuel shortages and the increased cost of fuel in business transactions have received quite a bit of attention as of late, says Lee Duffey, President of Duffey Communications. ÂThese issues are discussed in the media, in politics, at gas pumps and in American households. The survey results suggest that, as a result of all this talk, business leaders are starting to take notice of the fact that future energy shortages could significantly impact the well-being of American businesses and threaten the U.S. economy.Â
Created and conducted by public relations and marketing agency Duffey Communications in celebration of the firmÂs 20th anniversary, The Executive Visionaries Forecast surveyed 450 influential business and political leaders, including U.S. mayors and senators and C-level executives from well-known corporations such as American Express, The Southern Company and Sonesta Hotels and Resorts.
