Gandola is Venezuelan slang for trailer truck.

I saw the tweets earlier this morning, but lacked a good photo image to bring the news here. Now we have not only that front page image from a local paper, but citizen journalism sharing the information.

Why no gasoline in a country where the oil literally comes out from underground like the Beverly Hillbillies? Socialism.

Socialism removed the many engineers within PDVSA that knew about the oil industry and substituted them with loyal political hacks who were owed favors.  Money that was supposed to go to maintenance, was diverted to private pockets and eventually the equipment began to fail.

Refineries have not been refining up to deigned levels for a long time and so much so that Venezuela was forced to import gas to  cover the demand. But now, with a government refusing to pay bills and accounts frozen through the world, the citizens are now facing the probability they will need to walk, use public transportation or buy a burro.

Once PDVSA was only second to US companies in oil extraction, refining and distributing. Today, thanks to Socialism, we are about  week away from Mad Max 2.

Go Bernie! Go AOC!

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. They’ve very nearly caught up to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in their efforts to reduce the national carbon footprint!
