Venezuela abandons petrol subsidies as inflation set to hit one million per cent

Venezuela abandons petrol subsidies as inflation set to hit one million per centPresident Nicolas Maduro said Monday that some of the world's cheapest petrol that Venezuelan drivers enjoy will soon be sold at world market prices to combat rampant smuggling. "Gasoline must be sold at an international price to stop smuggling to Colombia and the Caribbean," Maduro said in a televised address. Venezuela, like most oil producing countries, has for decades subsidised fuel as a benefit to consumers. But its fuel prices have remained nearly flat for years despite hyperinflation that the International Monetary Fund has projected would reach 1 million per cent this year. That means that for the price of a cup of coffee, a driver can now fill the tank of a small SUV nearly 9,000 times. Recently, the average price of a coffee with milk was 2.2 million bolivars, or about 50 cents, local media has reported. Smugglers do brisk business reselling fuel in neighboring countries. Supporters of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro take part in a rally in Caracas on Monday Credit: FEDERICO PARRA/AFP Maduro said the government would still provide "direct subsidies" to citizens holding the "fatherland card," a state-issued identification card that the government uses to provide bonuses and track use of social services. He said the subsidy was only available to those who registered their cars in a vehicle census being conducted by the state.
