On Thursday, Nicolas Maduro said that the Venezuelan government plans to review prices for imported gasoline on the domestic market amid the shutdown of many of the national oil and gas company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA)’s refineries.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has announced that fuel prices will go up in the country as of 1 June, with gasoline due to be sold at 5,000 bolivars (2.5 US cents) per litre at gas stations nationwide.
These will include 200 stations that will sell premium fuel at the equivalent of 50 US cents a litre, and gasoline will be limited to 120 litres (30 gallons) per month for each vehicle, according to Maduro.
“This is a war, my dear fellow countrymen who listen to me, a brutal war”, the Venezuelan president said in an address to the nation on Saturday, adding that the US is “persecuting any company that brings a drop of gasoline to Venezuela”.
He also said that Venezuela should charge international prices for gasoline “sooner rather than later, to prevent it from being stolen from Colombia and the Caribbean”.
“That should not be decreed or done haphazardly. It should be done through planning and strategy”, Maduro pointed out.
Oil Minister Tareck El Aissami, for his part, pledged that diesel fuel, which is vital to industries and electric power plants, will still be subsidised “100%”.
