Nueva Esparta State relives the drama that Venezuela is going through due to the shortage of gasoline. At the state’s gas stations, long queues have reappeared due to the reduction in gasoline distribution.
The inhabitants of the State have denounced that the regime is reducing the shipment of fuel to the island with the excuse of the increase in the cases of Covid-19 in this area of the country.
The governor of Nueva Esparta, Alfredo Díaz, blamed the dictatorship for the extreme fuel shortage in the state.
“Maduro is responsible for everything that has been happening in Nueva Esparta and all of Venezuela. A country where we have the largest reserve of gas and oil in the world and today our country suffers from gas and gasoline shortages,” he said.
From the first fortnight of this month, the gas stations only supply two days a week to priority sectors. This means that one day is for vehicles whose plates end from 1 to 5 and the other from 6 to 0.
The only four service stations with U.S, dollar prices are also surrounded by long lines of vehicles from the early hours of the previous day.
Nicolás Maduro’s regime is abandoning the country’s states to their fate, where citizens must pay high prices to fill their vehicles with gasoline or find other alternatives to move around the territory. The dictatorship is the only one responsible for the worsening of the gasoline shortage in the country.
