What a dumb policy to keep oil prices THAT low for years. I mean, all that just for a handful of people who can afford a car and without imroving infrastructure at the same time? Another proof that Chavez's socialistic propaganda is just a load of rubbish

Chavez is just pleasing his people. Subsidized fuel is nuts.

Yeah, but in fact he subsidizes only these elite 15% or so car owners, while most of the society struggles to make ends meet. How socialistic is that?

Trying to increase fuel prices in Venezuela is probably one of the hottest potatoes for any politician. However is not an issue about subsidizing rich and middle-class car owners; That´s a too simplistic view as many poor people in Venezuela are also very dependant on fuel (bus and taxi drivers, motorcycle couriers, fishermen, farmers, trades people, truck drivers, etc). Last time a president tried to increase prices was in 1989 and it didn´t work out. The current government knows raising fuel prices could get them into quick-sand too.


"It is obscene to sell our gasoline this way. We might as well give it away!" President Hugo Chávez said in a January 2007 speech, when he ordered studies to be carried out into the possibility of raising domestic gas prices. However, such a move would be almost tantamount to political suicide in Venezuela.....

(...)




........Economists say the first step towards a solution could be gradually increasing gasoline prices to the halfway point between the domestic and export prices.

"But that measure would only work if economic policies are modified to keep inflation down; otherwise it would cause more problems," said Oliveros. ...." (from the previous article)






This is what happened in 1989 when politicians tried to increase fuel prices - it wasn´t precisely the rich who rioted:



"El Caracazo" Riots - 1989:










Fuel-truck drivers protesting against recent laws dealing with the internal fuel trade market:

In Eastern Washington state, the prices remain at €0,325 /litre for regular. Now that the prices are so low, I am actually saving less because I take bus

Its funny, in Brazil the gas is always the same price, even when oil was at $ 40 (before crisis), $140 (almost before crisis) and now, at $40 after the start of the crisis.

Around R$2,50 per litre, $1,20(?)

$1.89/gallon here in Buffalo (€0.396/liter or C$0.648/liter).

Even with the strong US dollar, prices here are below Canada again.

It varies. Motorways are usually the most expensive, and non-motorways-shops come after that. Cheapest are the automated unmanned gas stations which discount € 0,10 under motorway prices.

Here in northern Mexico, all Mexican border cities always have lower gas prices than the inerior of the country, for example here in my city, laredo, one litre of Pemex magna gasoline (the least expensive one) costs 5.70 pesos (about 16 pesos per gallon, or about 1.60 USD, 1.20 EUR), in the interior of the country the price of one litre of magna costs about 7.70 pesos.
