NEW YORK (SmartStops) — President Obama made some commentsover the weekend that there is no “silver bullet” to help bring down gas prices. While this isn’t what most Americans want to hear, investors and traders can profit from rising gasoline prices to help hedge their daily expenses.

You see people trying to grab headlines or score a few points. The truth is, there’s no silver bullet that can bring down gas prices right away.”
