Biden’s Sinking Poll Numbers Due In Part To Soaring Gas Prices

A new report indicates that the Biden White House is in a tizzy trying to figure out how to show voters how the administration plans to ease Americans’ pain at the gas pump.

Some of Biden’s top aides are reportedly scrambling on the problem.

Politico reports that “Biden aides, including National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and top economic adviser Brian Deese, as well as the Senior Adviser for Energy Security, Amos Hochstein and White House National Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy and her top aide, Ali Zaidi,” gathered on November 12 “at the White House to consider actions the administration could take to cool off energy prices, according to three people familiar with the meeting.”

Rising Gas Prices Bad News For Biden And The Democrats

“They considered several options, those sources said, ranging from releasing oil from the nation’s strategic petroleum reserve to ease gasoline prices, curbing crude oil and gas exports, and even softening biofuel blending rules for refineries,” Politico noted.

As inflation continues to rise, so does pubic anxiety about the economy. The gas market is where increasing prices are most visible on a day to day basis. As the country heads into winter, expect heating bills to rise along with the price of natural gas.

This is all bad news for President Joe Biden and the Democrats regarding the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.

Expect Republicans to capitalize on it.

Republican Senator John Barasso said in a Senate committee hearing recently, “The people of America will pay dearly for the energy that we are not producing in the United States, because what Joe Biden did in Glasgow was beg OPEC+ to sell more energy and produce more oil for the United States to buy.”

Barrasso was referring to the recent climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland that Biden spoke at.

Biden’s Approval Numbers Continue To Drop

Politico reported, “The inflationary pressure has helped drive Biden’s approval polls to just 41 percent, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released last week. About half of respondents put the blame for rising inflation on the White House — not the supply chain issues related to the pandemic recovery that most economists say is most responsible for driving up prices.”

“Republicans have also pointed to Biden’s January move to cancel the Keystone XL oil pipeline project and later pause auctions of federal land for oil drilling as the culprit, though energy experts have said those actions have had no near-term effect on supply levels or prices,” Politico also noted.
