Gas prices have skyrocketed since President Joe Biden took office, and now Americans are being forced to drive less.
Rasmussen released more polling which found that the vast majority of Americans say the higher prices are a “serious problem.”
“Soaring fuel prices have caused a majority of Americans to drive less and reduce spending in other areas of their household budgets,” Rasmussen said. “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 81% of American Adults say rising gasoline prices are a serious problem for their personal budget, including 56% who say higher gas prices are a Very Serious problem. Only 18% don’t consider the rising cost of gasoline a serious problem for their budget.”
Recent polling also suggests Americans don’t think those prices will go down anytime soon. Rasmussen Reports released polling data earlier this month which showed that 3 out of 4 surveyed Americans expect to pay even more for gas.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 78% of American adults say they’re paying more for a gallon of gas today compared to six months ago, and 84% think it’s likely those prices will continue to climb over the next six months,” Rasmussen said. “This includes 64% who think it’s very likely they’ll be paying even more for a gallon of gas in six months than they are today.”
