How to survive in Venezuela: Fuel

The collapse of the gas distribution system is one more edge of a terrible economic problem, which paradoxically occurs in what was one of the world's largest oil producers. The governmental subsidy of the price of gasoline at absurd levels is undoubtedly part of the problem. The cost of a liter of gasoline in Venezuela is 0.0097 Bs (approximately 0.00000026 cents). In this way, filling the tank of a small vehicle costs approximately 4 Bs, in an economy in which a canned Coca Cola costs 3,500 Bs (approximately 1 dollar). This ridiculous price generates any number of distortions throughout the economy and society.

Wasted Clothing

The moment I realized I did not have shoes I felt extremely miserable and poor. I know some people say that if I have a house and I sleep on a bed I am rich; but, when you get to a point where you cannot buy shoes, it is really difficult to stop feeling miserable.
