A new poll has found that over 80 percent of likely voters are concerned about the dramatic rise in gas prices under Biden.
This is terrible news for Biden and the Democrats because this is the kind of issue that can have a serious effect on an election.
When people are worried about being able to afford a basic item like gas for their car, other issues fade to the background.
New Poll: 82 Percent of Likely Voters ‘Concerned’ About Rising Gas Prices Under Biden
This week, the average price for a gallon of gas reached yet another all-time high of $4.37. Adding to the bad news, the average price for a gallon of diesel fuel has also reached a new record-high of $5.55 as of this writing.
No wonder, according to a new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports on behalf of The Heartland Institute, 82 percent of likely voters say they are either “very” or “somewhat concerned” about rising energy and gas prices under the Biden administration.
Since Joe Biden entered the Oval Office, the cost of energy (especially gasoline and diesel fuel) has absolutely skyrocketed, and this was occurring well before Vladimir Putin arrayed his troops on the Ukrainian border.
Consider. When Biden entered the Oval Office, the average price for a gallon of gasoline was $2.42. By May 2021, it had spiked to $3.08. In December 2021, it increased to $3.40. In February 2022, before Putin invaded Ukraine, it rose to $3.61. And, now, with the summer driving season upon us, the price for a gallon of gasoline is steadily climbing towards $5.00 per gallon.
People know this is Biden’s fault.

Amricans are paying the price now.
Democrats will pay the price in November.
