The transportation crisis has worsened in recent months, not only because of the increase in prices of spare parts but also due to fuel shortages.
The President of the United Transport Front in Aragua State, José Luis Trocel, denounced that the fuel subsidy for transport workers is not being complied with.
Trocel assured that the queues to stock up are endless and they cannot fully load and re-supply the vehicles fuel tanks, managing to fill only half a tank on the orders of the officials who are on duty in gas stations.
He indicated that generally the units can work one day yes and two no since they lose days and days in the queues to re-supply the vehicles.
In the state, only 25% of the transport fleets are active, since many units are decommissioned for lack of gasoline or due to some mechanical damage that is difficult to solve in the face of inflation.
The leader of the transport workers denounced that military officials demand payments in dollars to allow access to the service, a situation that is repeated in most service stations.
“Of the 71 service stations that must exclusively be used for public transport, none have complied (…) Not working has unabled transportation workers to earn their livelihoods to feed their homes,” he assured.
They demanded that they designate service stations to supply only public transportation in the region and avoid the lack of the service (fuel) as has recently been the norm.
