New polling shows that Americans are very concerned about rising gas prices and very few believe President Joe Biden is doing much about it.
Rasmussen released new polling data Tuesday showing that only a fraction of voters think Biden is doing enough to address rising gas prices.
“Voters are worried about rising fuel prices and most don’t think President Joe Biden is doing enough to solve the problem,” Rasmussen said. “A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that only 26% of Likely U.S. voters believe Biden has done enough to stop the rising price of gasoline, home heating oil and other petroleum products. Sixty-two percent (62%) say Biden has not done enough to stop rising petroleum prices, while another 12% are not sure.”
The poll comes despite Biden’s decision to release strategic oil reserves. Critics said the small amount of oil would do little for gas prices and was only political posturing after his crackdown on energy producers, including their pipelines.
Gas prices have increased roughly $1.20 from the same time last year.
“The Biden-Buttigieg plan: Pay Americans to buy electric cars,” said Byron York. “Tell them they’ll never have to worry about gas prices again. Then enact policies that will raise the price of electricity.”
