A new poll shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans disapprove of the way President Obama is handling gasoline prices, a finding which could blunt his election-year political gains from the brightening economic picture.

Sixty-five percent disapprove of Obama’s performance on prices at the pump that have surged in recent weeks, while 26 percent approve and nine percent had no opinion, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Monday.
