“The promise of Maduro’s Regime where he boasted that today there would be gasoline throughout the country is just one more mockery.” This was denounced by the Merida leader of Voluntad Popular and director of institutional relations of the Presidency in Charge, Golfredo Morett, who also pointed out that the queues to resupply fuel continue, being a mockery for all Venezuelans and especially for the people of Merida who must spend days and nights in queues to be able to supply fuel at international prices, because at least this region of the country has not received subsidized gasoline never again, and when it reappears, only those who are ‘enchufados’ (plugged in, politically connected) benefit.”
“The oil industry has been destroyed by the PSUV and Maduro’s allies, therefore there is no fuel,” Morett said.
He also warned that while the Venezuelans must move on foot and continue to suffer, shipments to Cuba and PetroCaribe’s allied countries have not been stopped.
According to Morett, this lack of fuel also increases the costs of agricultural products because producers do not have fuel to harvest their crops, much less to transport them to the cities.
This situation also affects the common citizen who must move around the city on foot, because public transportation is also affected and paralyzed by lack of fuel and private vehicles have deteriorated because the gasoline that is distributed is of very poor quality and damages the vehicles.
To conclude, he indicated that the solution is the National Salvation Agreement, an agreement that allows for truly free elections, presidential, regional and municipal, including parliamentary ones. It will also allow vaccines and humanitarian aid to enter the country for all Venezuelans alike without distinction.
