President Joe Biden has tried to distance himself from the high gas prices by blaming others, like Russia President Vladimir Putin and the US oil industry itself, but most voters aren’t buying his excuses.
That's according to Rasmussen Reports, which says "76% of Republicans think Biden bears most responsibility for higher fuel prices, as do 24% of Democrats and 54% of voters not affiliated with either major party."
Eighty-four (84%) of likely voters say they believe the rising price of gasoline, home heating oil and other petroleum based products is a "serious problem," including 61% who say it's a "very serious problem."
Only 15% of those polled said rising fuel prices were "not a serious problem."
The findings are basically unchanged since November.
Recent AAA national average of price per gallon in the U.S. stood at $4.141.
California was the state with the highest price of gas at $5.685 per gallon, while Georgia had the lowest price at $3.708.
