Another triumph of the revolution: Rationing fuel in a country where oil literally comes out from the ground.  120 liters (31.7 gallons a month) for 4 wheeled vehicles and half that for motorcycles.  You are exempt if you are dong public transportation or cargo. Of course, you would have to find a station that has fuel to begin with which is not easy.

Here is another kicker: the fuel is still being subsidized as in being sold way under cost as it has been done since decades prior to the Revolution. They do not have the income they had before and now they are actually importing fuel, but rather than accept reality and let the free market adjust and provide, they keep perpetuating the problem.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Venezuelan oil is very heavy, much of it is more heavy than water. It takes a special knowledge and refining equipment to turn that ultra heavy oil into gasoline and diesel. And the specialty refineries are in Louisiana and Texas (CITGO).
