Repulsion Power

Similarly to lone pair repulsion, do double bonds (or triple bonds) create more repulsion than single bonds?

This website helped a bit if you want to check it out: https://chemistry.stackexchange.com/questions/2426/why-do-single-double-and-triple-bonds-repel-each-other-equal-amounts

To summarize, in VSEPR theory, multiple bonds give deviations from the normal ideal shape with just single bonds.
