US President Donald Trump appears to have made at least one New Year’s resolution: to keep his foot on the gas when it comes to demanding lower energy prices.

The former property magnate did not take long to return to Twitter with a favoured theme, kicking off 2019 with a number of gasoline-related tweets on New Year’s Day.

“Gas prices are low and expected to go down this year. This would be good!” Trump wrote of gasoline prices that are already lower in the US than in many other developed nations.
