Gas prices have rapidly increased under Biden’s presidency. Biden has been quick to blame the increase in prices on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, but prices soared prior to the invasion as well.
A recent timeline posted by the New York Post showed that from Biden’s inaguration to when Putin invaded Ukraine on February 24th, gas prices went up 48.3%.
Voters are generally dissatisfied with Biden’s performance as President, with his approval ratings continuing to plummet. The issue voters are most dissatisfied with the President about is his economic performance.
Biden has overseen the highest inflation the United States has experienced in roughly 40 years.
Now, the Republican Party plans to capitalize on his poor economic performance by registering voters at gas stations who are feeling pain at the pump because of his disastrous economic policies.

The Republican National Committee is launching an initiative to register voters at gas stations in response to the record surge in gas prices that has Americans paying over $6 per gallon in some areas.
The Republican National Committee told Fox News that its voter initiative began on Saturday and involved staff and volunteers registering people to vote at gas stations in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area of Arizona where gas prices have soared to over $4.50 per gallon.
“Arizonans are frustrated with paying the record-high gas prices we’ve seen recently, this is an issue that affects almost every single Arizonan,” The RNC’s Arizona Communications Director Ben Petersen told Fox News in a statement. “There’s no doubt that everyone is feeling the pain at the pump, so a gas station right now may be the very best possible place for one of our volunteers to have a conversation with someone and get someone signed up to vote.”
