Energy: Is Biden policy running out of steam?

Gas prices at the pump are soaring, an the country is pointing its finger at one man: Joe Biden, whose please-the-left energy policies have had a staggering negative impact on the economy, which seems to revolve around the cost of a gallon of gasoline.

A new Rasmussen survey released Monday says 70 percent of likely voters “believe the U.S. government should encourage increased oil and gas production to reduce America’s dependence on foreign sources of oil and gas. Only 18% oppose a policy of encouraging U.S. energy independence.”

“Majorities in every political category – 87% of Republicans, 55% of Democrats and 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party – believe the U.S. government should encourage increased oil and gas production to reduce America’s dependence on foreign sources of oil and gas,” Rasmussen reported.

This comes as Axios is reporting that Biden may travel to Saudi Arabia this spring. Axios acknowledged the White House has labeled travel plan announcements as “premature speculation.”

Over the past several days, Biden has gotten a bump in the ratings, with 23 percent of Americans saying they “strongly approve” of his job performance, while 45 percent “strongly disapprove.” It gives him a -22 rating on the Presidential Approval Index.

But that could go downhill fast. According to Rasmussen, 52 percent of likely voters “think the energy policy of President Joe Biden’s administration is worse than the policy of former President Donald Trump” while “33 percent believe the Biden administration’s energy policy is better than the Trump administration’s.”

Voters haven’t forgotten that Biden inherited energy independence, which he torpedoed the first day he was in office. Since Biden took office, gas prices at the pump have gone up dramatically, and there has been a residual effect on the cost of goods including groceries.

Still, partisanship has some bearing on the issue. According to Rasmussen, “More Republicans (71%) than Democrats (51%) or unaffiliated voters (60%) believe energy policy will be Very Important in this year’s congressional elections.” Overall, a whopping 88 percent of voters “believe energy policy will be important in this year’s congressional elections.”

Crude oil hit $130 per barrel on Sunday.
