The Venezuelan President, Nicholas Maduro, announced today, Sunday, the raising of fuel prices, which until now was almost free, starting from June 1, and Maduro said – according to the channel – that “the international price we set is 50 cents per liter Of gasoline, “pointing out that 200 gas stations can sell it at this price, putting an end to the state’s monopoly to sell fuel in the country, and private contractors will be allowed to import gasoline.

He added, “The establishment of a subsidy system based on five thousand bolivars ($0.025) per liter, allows the purchase of 120 liters of gasoline per month for private cars and 60 liters for motorcycles, and the public transport sector for passengers and goods” will receive a 100% subsidy “.

It is noteworthy that Venezuela suffers from a shortage of fuel, despite the fact that it possesses huge reserves of oil, due to the decline in production, in a crisis exacerbated by the outbreak of the Corona epidemic “Covid-19” and its economic consequences.

Of the 1,800 stations in Venezuela, about 240 workstations have continued since Maduro announced public isolation measures to contain the outbreak of the Coronavirus in March, which included restrictions on fuel sales due to a sharp drop in stocks.

After reaching the quotas, drivers will have to pay at international prices.

Independent companies will supply the remaining 200 stations, which will make it necessary for drivers who buy gasoline to pay half a dollar a liter, in hard currency.
