Most — 78% — of Americans say it's likely gas will continue to increase in the next six months, according to a new survey by Rasmussen Reports.
Just 14% say it's not likely.
The results from the poll, released Tuesday, were mixed:
- 78% of men say it's likely people will be paying more for a gallon of gas in six months than today, compared to 78% of women.
- 93% of Republicans say they expect to be paying more for gas in six months, compared to 6% who don’t.
- 67% of Democrats say they expect to be paying more for gas in six months, while 27% do not.
- 77% of independents say they expect to be paying more for gas by January, compared to 12% who do not.
The poll, conducted June 20-21, surveyed 1,000 Americans. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
