MOST BELIEVE UNREST IN ARAB NATIONS WILL RAISE GAS PRICES
Most people are expecting the price of gas to continue to go up. Nearly 90-percent of those taking part in a new Rasmussen Reports poll say they believe the political instability in Arab nations such as Egypt and Libya means Americans will be paying more to put fuel in their vehicles. Only six-percent don't think it's "likely" that there'll be a hike in gas prices in the coming months, and just one-percent don't believe it's "at all likely" the price of gas will change significantly. More than 85-percent are already feeling a pinch at the pump. The majority say they're shelling out more for gas now than they were this time last year, and believe gas prices will be even higher six months from now.
