One-third of Americans have been forced to alter their Fourth of July plans due to high gas prices, according to an Emerson College poll released Friday.

1,271 registered voters were asked whether soaring gas prices affected their plans, to which 33 percent said they had changed their travel plans this holiday weekend due to consistently high gas prices.

“Regarding airfare, 18% have changed plans because of issues with plane travel,” the survey found.

Gas prices stand at an average of $4.842 on Friday after reaching an all-time high of $5.016 on June 14.

Gas prices are still well over $2.40 higher than on former President Donald Trump’s last full day in office on January 19, 2021.

It doesn't take a genius to work out why this is happening:

Biden himself resorted to asking gas stations to lower their prices on Twitter:

Meanwhile, the cost of throwing a Fourth of July weekend cookout has jumped drastically by 17 percent from last year, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF).

The AFBF wrote:

Survey results showed the retail price for 2 pounds of ground beef at $11.12, up 36% from last year. Meanwhile, the Agriculture Department’s Producer Price Index indicates that compared to a year ago, farm-level cattle prices are up 17.5%, but wholesale beef prices are down 14%.

This serves to highlight the differences between farm-level, wholesale and retail beef prices and how the events of the last few years have had significant impacts on the beef production and cattle pricing cycles, making them all hard to predict.

Several other foods in the survey, including chicken breasts, pork chops, homemade potato salad, fresh-squeezed lemonade, pork & beans, hamburger buns, and cookies, also increased in price.

Meanwhile, the majority of Americans indicated that the rising cost of food is affecting them “a lot,"  according to a recent YouGov/CBS News Poll.

“Fireworks are not the only thing exploding this holiday, as prices are soaring higher than any bottle rocket,”  Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

“Joe Biden’s reckless agenda has made it more difficult for Americans to spend time with family, friends, and celebrate Independence Day," she said.

"The American dream is slipping away because of Biden’s reckless agenda,” she added.
