Soaring food and energy costs have pushed annual inflation up to 2.1 percent, and consumers aren’t happy about it. A new poll conducted for  The Hill shows that 62 percent of likely voters are “very concerned” about price increases, and another 26 percent are “somewhat concerned.”

americans, poll, inflationThe surge in gasoline prices appears to be the biggest worry. When asked what’s causing their inflation jitters, 61 percent of respondents cited gasoline prices, while 18 percent listed food. Housing came in third at 9 percent.

Surprisingly enough, Republicans are more fearful of inflation than Democrats, with 72 percent of Republican respondents very concerned, compared to only 48 percent of Democrats.

Among independents, 68 percent are very concerned.
