It has been suggested that traders have been manipulating the price of gas; and the government says that it is worried. Didn't they know?

We are being ripped off.
I assumed the government knew. If they really did not then they have no business being the government.
I am put in mind of a quote I learned a few minutes ago, attributed to J S Mill: Conservatives are not necessarily stupid; but stupid people tend to be conservatives.
