Witch will have fewer bubbles? cold water or hot water?

If you let water sit quietly for long enough, it will have no
visible bubbles, and very, very few microscopic bubbles. The gas from
the bubbles all dissolves in the water or escapes into the atmosphere.
Whether a particular glass has bubbles in it depends more on whether it
has been stirred up recently and what faucet the water came from than
on the temperature.
