Rasmussen Reports released the survey data, which shows 62% of Americans expect higher gas prices.
“The price of gasoline has decreased significantly in the past two months, but most Americans continue to think they’ll be paying more at the pump in the future,” Rasmussen said.
The polling data shows Americans’ pessimism on gas prices despite the recent decline of gas prices in recent weeks from their record high earlier this year.
According to AAA, the current national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.69, far lower than when it topped $5 per gallon earlier this year.
However, prices are still much higher than when President Joe Biden took office.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of American Adults say they’re paying more for a gallon of gas now than they were six months ago. That’s down from 89% in July. Fifteen percent (15%) now say they’re paying less for gas than they were six months ago, while 19% say they’re paying about the same.”
