68% Believe Invasion of Ukraine Will Lead to Higher Gas Prices in U.S.

Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters believe that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will lead to higher gas prices in the United States. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 10% disagree and 22% are not sure.

The survey also found that 68% believe the invasion will make supply chain problems worse. On that point, 13% disagree and 19% are not sure.

On both questions, older voters are more likely than younger voters to make a connection between the invasion and economic consequences for the U.S.

Note: Neither Scott Rasmussen, ScottRasmussen.com, nor RMG Research, Inc. have any affiliation with Rasmussen Reports. While Scott Rasmussen founded that firm, he left nearly a decade ago and has had no involvement since that time.


The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on February 22-23, 2022. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.

The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
