Internationalist Vladimir Adrianza said a first step has been taken in the right direction regarding the adjustment of gasoline in Venezuela, however he stated that “The country continues to have the cheapest in the world.”
“Venezuela does not have to give away gasoline, the president put out a new price scheme at the right time and it is totally correct, it is not easy to remember the blockade and the Covid-19 pandemic that we are going through,” he said.
He insisted it is a brave policy that protects the population. “The cost of five thousand bolivars (0,13€ approx) must be in line with the cost of production, I imagine the national government will gradually match the price until it is adjusted and make profit, it is only fair.”
He explained in any country, gasoline has a cost above production. “We are talking in the United States the cost of fuel is 0.61 dollars per liter, the idea is not to sell at a loss,” he said.
Vladimir Adrianza, who is also an analyst and researcher in Geopolitics and Geoeconomics, warned the smuggling of extraction to neighboring states should be stopped. “Their administrations have done a lot of damage to our country, measures like those have been taken are correct.”
He proposed the Venezuelan nation should resume gasification projects for public transport and extend a gas network for all sectors, as well as promote railways in the country.
“Venezuela has to build infrastructure, mass transportation of public cargo and passengers.”
