President Trump touts lower gas prices in the New Year, saying they’re expected to go down.
The President made those remarks on Twitter Tuesday, suggesting the low prices are a result of his policies.
This comes after reports speculate that after three years of rising gas prices in the United States, there could be a decrease in 2019.
Analysts speculate the expected drop in cost could be a result of the Trump Administration’s hard-line stance on Iran, and closer relations with one of its main oil suppliers, Saudi Arabia.
