The first day that it went up above $1.5 per liter I went to a local gas station and purchased $10 worth of gasoline. The attendant asked me if I had see the price. I said I had. He goes: Blame Russia for that?! I responded: What does have Russia to do with this? And he got surprised and asked: Are you Russian?! I, in no way look like a Russian and don't know why that idiot assumed so. I just answered No and left! The truth is the oil companies, as I said above, always use a scapegoat to benefit from that, particularly now that the pandemic is near over and people are planning for summer trip. This time it's Russia!
