The Deputy of the National Assembly, Juan Pablo Guanipa, denounced that the lack of fuel continues to seriously affect producers in Zulia State.
“Fishermen, farmers and agricultural workers are paralyzed 80 percent due to the lack of fuel in the country,” he confirmed on Monday through his personal Twitter account.
Also, the also vice-president of the National Assembly (AN), said that many of the producers of the region are registering losses.
“All the productive sectors of the State are submerged in misery, some have presented losses and many have had to suffer from (lack of) food,” he added.
The parliamentarian also reported that “only the people who are affiliated to the regime have access to fuel” and that they themselves are in charge of selling it at $2 per liter.
Faced with the shortage of gasoline, many fishermen have been forced to go out in boats with makeshift sails and oars to try to do their jobs and provide for their families.
