Gas Up Twenty Cents Per Gallon in Past Month


National average gas price this morning: $3.88 per gallon. One month ago: $3.68.

In that light, this poll result isn’t that surprising: “More than two in three Americans disapprove of how President Barack Obama is dealing with soaring gas prices, but don’t focus their blame on him for causing the problem, according to a new poll. Most Americans, 68 percent, disapprove of Obama’s handling of gas prices, including 89 percent of Republicans, 73 percent of independents and 52 percent of Democrats, a Reuters/Ipsos survey found Tuesday. Only one in four, 24 percent, said they approve of the president’s response to high energy prices.”
