Democrats Face Ad Buys On High Gas Prices

Gas prices and inflation are continuing to soar, and now Democrats are feeling the pain heading into the midterm elections.

The National Republican Congressional Committee released a new major ad buy targeting vulnerable Democrats with one consistent message: Democrats are to blame for high gas prices.

“Joe Biden’s war on American energy began the second he took power, and now American consumers are paying the price,” said NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer. “The blame for record-high gas prices lies solely at the feet of Joe Biden and House Democrats.”

The Biden administration has taken heavy fire for its domestic energy policies, especially stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline and holding back drilling permits.

“Since taking power Democrats launched a full-scale war on energy that includes: slow-rolling oil and gas permits, canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline, banning new oil and gas leases on federal lands, halting new federal support for oil and gas projects overseas, and suspending oil drilling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR),” the NRCC said.

Trish Regan has hammered this issue repeatedly on her podcast. Check it out here.

The ads target these Democrats:

DCCC Chair Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18)

Tom O’Halleran (AZ-02)

Sharice Davids (KS-03)

Elissa Slotkin (MI-07)

Dan Kildee (MI-08)

Angie Craig (MN-02)

Chris Pappas (NH-01)

Susie Lee (NV-03)

Elaine Luria (VA-02)

Kim Schrier (WA-08)

The ads come after the Bureau of Labor Statistics Thursday released data showing that the Consumer Price index rose 7.9% in the prior 12 months.

“The 12-month increase has been steadily rising and is now the largest since the period ending January 1982,” BLS said. “The all items less food and energy index rose 6.4 percent, the largest 12-month change since the period ending August 1982. The energy index rose 25.6 percent over the last year, and the food index increased 7.9 percent, the largest 12-month increase since the period ending July 1981.”

Gas prices have been a major reason for that rise.

“Increases in the indexes for gasoline, shelter, and food were the largest contributors to the seasonally adjusted all items increase,” BLS said. “The gasoline index rose 6.6 percent in February and accounted for almost a third of the all items monthly increase; other energy component indexes were mixed. The food index rose 1.0 percent as the food at home index rose 1.4 percent; both were the largest monthly increases since April 2020.”
