Rising inflation sees Maine, New Englanders blast Biden administration and ‘rich people trying to get richer’

BANGOR, Maine – Mainers, who heavily rely on home heating oil to survive the winter, said they're already being forced to make difficult decisions due to inflation.

"I’m not driving as much," Rebecca, of Bradley, Maine, told Fox News. "Trying to conserve. Filled up our tank early this year anticipating the increase in heating oil."

Households in the Northeast rely on heating oil more than any other region in the U.S., and Maine households use more than any other state, according to the Energy Information Administration. In the Pine Tree state, heating oil is at its highest price in over two years.

"The cost of everything, gas, oil for the house, food, everything," is going up, Dennis, of Bangor, Maine, told Fox News.
