Are gas prices going up in Menlo Park since the election?

Original post made by SVK, Menlo Park: Belle Haven, on Feb 10, 2017

Very few folks are rooting for higher gas prices. One of them is Vladimir Putin, trying to rescue his failing economy.

Putin is Trump's buddy.

Trump has no incentive to keep gas prices down. Putin's pick for our Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson wants them up, as would be expected for a former Exxon CEO. We'll see what actions he takes in the next year. Clearly, they will reward Putin by removing sanctions.

Obviously, Russia demands higher prices as a solution to faltering economy. And for Putin (the world's richest crook) to skim more off the top.
