Americans See Climbing Gas Prices

Gas prices are starting to surge around the country, and Americans are feeling the pain already.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 64% of American Adults are paying more for a gallon of gas today compared to six months ago, and 74% think it’s likely those prices will continue to climb over the next six months. This includes 44% who think it’s Very Likely they’ll be paying even more for a gallon of gas in six months than they are today. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
