So when I say that oil companies are conspiring to keep gasoline prices high, is that very likely, somewhat likely or unlikely?

Unlikely.......................... 14

Don't Know/Other .................. 5

How about that some people in the federal government had specific warnings of the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington, but chose to ignore those warnings. Is this very likely, somewhat likely or unlikely?

Don't Know/Other................... 8

How likely is it that some people in the federal government knew about the assassination of President Kennedy in advance?

How likely is it that some people in the federal government have proof that there is intelligent life from other worlds?
