Russia aiding North Korea with oil imports

“Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!” President Trump said in a tweet following a telephone conversation with South Korean president Moon Jae-in. Such a nice individual. I doubt that "little Rocket man" is in those lines

I was interested to see how much are North Koreans paying for gas. When started typing "How much..." Google recommended search was "How much North Korea hates Americans"

“The reports claim that the price of diesel had fallen by 60 percent since early November, and the price of gasoline fell by around 25 percent.”

Now, it seems like they are paying as much as we are. Are we under some kind of sanctions here? Can Russia help us?

Gasoline prices fell across the nation (US), but enjoy it while you can. With crude prices rising as OPEC restricts production and inventories dwindle, analysts expect higher fuel costs in 2018.Nationally, a gallon of gasoline averaged $2.46, down 6 cents over the month, but 28 cents higher than year ago.GasBuddy reported that motorists may see some modest decreases over the next few weeks, but they should expect higher gasoline prices next year.

Russia's and China's support to North Korea didn't stop during the sanctions. But, unlikely of Russia, whose exports to North Korea has increased, China reduces export to this country. At least that's what the offical information say, but I still think the situation on the field is different.

Despite what some screaming media headlines suggest, if Russia is continuing to export oil to N Korea it's not because it's buddy-buddy with Kim. It's taking a different diplomatic approach and doesn't agree with the current US approach, which is to light a fire under a box of unstable explosives.
