  • I wish I had a tanker! Venezuela and gas prices.

    Because of the insane inflation of the Bolivar in Venezuela, you can currently purchase roughly 925,000 gallons of gasoline for a dollar ($1) there! Inflation is approaching 1,000,000% That means for pocket change I could theoretically fill a super tanker...

    With gasoline and make an absolute killing selling it somewhere that the government and country isn't run by an insane semi-literate ex-bus driver who is now a Socialist dictator.

    Too late - the fuel subsidies have just been scrapped because people have been buying vast amounts and smuggling it out of the country!

        Interesting. Their gas is sold in America by the VALERO chain of stations.

            Surprised they weren't ought out and renamed. That's how it works here. People still need gas from the local stations.

              Here there's plenty of alternatives.

                        Here, too.
                        Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                          Out here in what AJ refers to as the "backwater" where I am, we are seeing a resurgence of Sinclair fuels. They used to be fairly common in parts of Colorado, then kind of faded away for a while and are now back and seem to be doing good business.
