We discuss the role that quantum group symmetries, in particular $SU_q(2)$, play in a thermodynamic system at high temperatures. We show that the interactions introduced by the quantum group symmetries, are such that a quantum group gas describe repulsive and attractive behavior in two and three spatial dimensions.
