The fuel crisis continues to make the day-to-day life of Venezuelans more difficult. The poor distribution of what little gasoline there is, worsens the situation of public transportation.
In the municipality of Simón Rodríguez, Anzoátegui State, public transportation has been reduced by 50% due to the shortage of gasoline and the inefficient dispatch of fuel in the few gas stations that operate in the area.
Transport-Anzoátegui spokesman José Brito explained that the carriers have their own gasoline distribution plan.
“Every day we are going to supply 50 collective transport units and 120 low-capacity units,” he said.
Brito added that each high-capacity unit will receive 100 liters of gasoline, while alternative vans will only be able to choose from 50, 60 or 70 liters of fuel.
Taxi drivers will only be able to refuel 30 liters of gasoline.
In addition to dealing with the fuel shortage, workers in this sector must fight to get the spare parts needed by the transport units. Many of the parts no longer exist in the country or are sold at exorbitant prices and in dollars.
