June 1, 2020

The leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaidó, rejected the gasoline price increase announced by the President’s government, Nicolás Maduro, on Sunday and urged all sectors of Venezuelan society to take a stand against it.

In a special session of the National Assembly, Guaidó wanted to criticize the government’s recent move to increase the price of gasoline, which can be bought at the country’s gas stations for $ 0.5 a liter.

“The thief and destroyer of the oil industry has made us the cheapest gasoline in the world,” said Guaidó, who has again insisted on creating a “national emergency government” to “live” with dignity.

Guaidó, self-proclaimed “responsible president” of Venezuela, has accused Maduro of “making fun of the population” and assured that the government will only be able to strengthen the “Bachaqueo”, the irregular fuel business, with this measure.
