Inflation and gas prices are what many people are thinking about as they ponder which candidate will receive their vote.

“When things go up, double what they were last year, yeah,” voter Nikki Thatcher said when asked how these issues affect her vote.

A nonprofit political action group called Americans for Prosperity has highlighted rising gas prices since 2022 and wants the matter to be considered when Americans vote.

The group is “focusing on how we can create an environment for robust, affordable, reliable American energy, made domestically right here at home,” said Americans for Prosperity spokesperson, Ashley Klingensmith.

Voters will choose between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump to address inflation and gas prices.

GasBuddy and the Energy Information Administration say the average price of gas nationwide in 2024 will be cheaper than last year.
