According to corporate records from Delaware and Virginia, Brechbuhl serves as president of the organization, which can raise...

You’re absolutely right, the president does not set the price of gas, but he can influence it. And while releasing some strategic reserves matters, given how much has been released, it is really just a drop in the...
