Venezuela to Sell Cheap Oil to U.S. Poor

Are you freezing cold this winter? Can't afford to drive to the supermarket? Maybe Chavez's socialism can help.

"Venezuela will soon begin selling heating oil at
discount prices to poor communities in Boston and New
York, following up on a promise by President Hugo
Chavez, Venezuela's state oil company announced.

"Citgo, a subsidiary of Venezuela's state-owned oil
company that runs roughly 16,000 gas stations in the
United States, will offer fuel at discounted rates in
Boston as early as next week, according to a statement
posted Friday on the company's Web site.

. . . .

"Chavez often blames the plight of the poor on
unbridled capitalism and strongly criticizes the Bush
administration for failing to reduce poverty in the
United States."

--thanks to C.B. for this lead to cheap oil
