The fuel shortage in Venezuela has seriously affected the country’s agricultural municipalities, whose production units are abandoned.
Agricultural producers have complained that they must queue for more than 10 days.
“We have up to twelve and thirteen days in line and we don’t get an answer. We have to leave the production areas alone, abandoned because our workers for lack of food want to leave and we can’t alleviate this situation,” said Rafael Goyo, agricultural producer of the entity.
In the population of Valle de la Pascua, farm workers and people in general said that even in the service stations with international prices they have to queue for weeks.
Furthermore, he said that people must sleep in the place, where there are also children and elderly people.
Fuel shortages have meant that items such as meat and hard cheese cannot be moved to other areas of the country.
In the town of Calabozo, although the fuel is arriving, the service is irregular, which generates long queues and also a limited supply of liters per vehicle. In Altagracia de Orituco, people have approximately one month waiting for subsidized or internationally priced gasoline.
