A gas is most soluble in water under conditions of high pressure, and low temperature.


And you can demonstrate this every time you take the cap off a bottle of fizzy or carbonated drink. Certainly a soft drink (usually sealed under pressure) will foam more vigorously when it is at room temperature, than when it is chilled.
