The fuel crisis continues to affect the common Venezuelan. The gasoline shortage prevents transporters from working and affects the mobilization of citizens.
In Mérida, more than 150 transport units are paralyzed due to lack of fuel.
Drivers denounced that although it is a prioritized sector under the pandemic, the amount of gasoline supplied daily is not enough.
“What we want is to serve the public transport that is a priority and in the Campo Elías municipality they do not want to provision the transport sector,” said Benjamin Lara, President of the Mérida Transport Union.
Likewise, he asserted that the people of Merida are claiming their right to transport.
Oscar Peña, a transporter from the state of Mérida, explained that the 100 liters they supply, are only enough to work one day.
