Who Do You Blame for Rising Gas Prices? — Survey of the Day

As gas approaches an average of $4.00 a gallon, the public isn’t happy with the way President Obama is dealing with the issue.

According to a recent survey from Reuters/Ipsos, 68 percent disapprove of the way the president is handling gas prices, whereas only 24 percent give him the thumbs up.

However, that doesn’t mean the public blames Obama for gas prices that went up 30 cents in just the last month.

Instead the two most cited scapegoats in the survey were “oil companies that want to make too much profit” at 36 percent, followed by the 26 percent who said a range of factors “including oil companies, politicians, foreign countries that dominate oil reserves and environmentalists who want to limit oil exploration” are to blame.
