He is actually too modest to come out and say thanks, but I bet he is very happy that we continue to buy his black gold.

What's 4 dollars a gallon for us rich Americans anyway.

I don`t think for a second that he is interested in thanking americans for anything. If it were up to him he wouldn`t even sell the oil to the United States, but what people tend to forget is that he really has no choice, his high sulfur oil can only be processed in American refineries. If China or India or Russia were to buy venezuelan oil they would have to build new refineries and that takes around five years. No leader in their right mind would make such an investment counting on Hugo to stay in power for that long of a time.

Thousands of low-income people in Boston and New York will get help with heating oil this winter, thanks to a gesture from Venezuela's controversial president. Citgo Petroleum Corp., a company controlled by the Venezuelan government, will supply more than 12 million gallons of home heating oil at a cost 40 per cent below market prices

This article is from 2005, but I remember 2006 when Chavez did this too. President Bush refused Chavez's offer of reduced oil prices this past winter.

Chaves doesn't like Americans but he loves our money

Do you really think he will ever give up his presidency? I doubt it.
Cheers

Of course he likes the dollars, he just says he doesn`t like were they come from. Chavez has no plan to exit power, he has already said that he plans to stay for at least 50 years, but it really is not only up to him. I try to read venezuelan media as much as I can, both oficialist and from the opposition and I can tell you that most serious analysts count on Hugo out by 2012, optimists say 2009.

Millions of working class Americans are being held hostage to good old Hugo Chaves’ black gold, and the 4 dollars at the gas pump that mostly goes to him.

No one is forcing him to charge 105 dollars a barrel for oil. If he really wants to do something for the poor he don't need permission from Bush.

It's his oil he can sell it at any price he wants, but he's not going to, he loves that cold hard cash that flows south of the border like milk and honey into his bank account, which is probably in Switzerland

Ok so Chavez is not the only making the profits here,

Canada (17%)
Saudi Arabia (14.5%)
Mexico (13%)
Venezuela (11%)

As you can see is three countries before Venezuela that sell the most oil to the US they all very thankful to the American consumer specially the ones with the big gas hugger.

Even the antichrist is said to be doing good, or will be doing good in the eyes of some people.
As much as I dislike Chavez, MY CHILDREN were kept warm this winter through the Joe (Kennedy) 4oil program here in Massachusetts.
When you have 3 kids and spend 300$/week for food, mortagage is $2000,
medical expenses, bla bla bla...you have no other recourse but to accept the handout. And my son earns a good living- you know, he used to be middle class.



Just what TH are you supposed to do to live? Turn it down???
We also frequent Walmart BECAUSE WE HAVE TO.
YOU cant choose when things are this bad, now, can you.

Not sure why Venezuelans put up with Chaves all he has accomplished so far is running businesses out of his country and now there are constant food shortages. The longer they leave him in power the worse it will get.

We don't do much better here in America, just when things are looking up we replace the whole congress with newbies and let it all go to heck.

That 11% adds up to hundreds of billions of dollars, should be enough cash to keep Hugo Chaves living like a king for many years to come, while his peasant people fight over the rampant food shortages he has created for them by running off private enterprise.
But that’s what his people want, who am I to argue

When Hugo gets through with Venezuela, the antichrist will look like a saint in comparison. That’s my humble .o2

The good thing about high gas prices is that perhaps it will get some congestion off the highways. But man, Hugo is got to be loven that $110. dollar oil we keep buying from him. I sure hope some of them poor people in Venezuela are getting some of that jack, yeah right

I think we all understand that you despite Hugo C. we dont need to have 10 post with the same comments on how he likes the dollars, we figured it out what you ment.

And to much US citizen are complaining about their gasoline hitting 4$ a gallon, ive stated it before in here and i do it again, here in my country in Europe we pay 9$ for a gallon, so please stop the "Ohhh its so unfair" and instead start acting on local plan, like carpools etc etc.


Ohh and personally i think Hugo C. is a good guy, when he stands up to US and tells them to start pay back the millions of dollars they still owe the Venzuela people for already used oil US never paid for.

I don't hate Hugo, he is not much different than the rest of us, we are all power hungry, he just happed to get powerful and greedy. Maybe I envy him.

And $9 dollars a gallon in Europe, well that’s socialism for you. But I think america is heading there too. Socialism and $9 dollar gas. We americans like emulating Europeans. First if was your clothing and food, now it's you politics too.

I agree, not that I think Hugo is a good guy, I don't, but that he should stop selling us his oil to teach us a lesson.

America can fill the gap from the other countries we get oil.

There are many people that hate America, mostly they envy Americans, and that is a powerful motivator to attack everything we are and do.

The worse part is that many Americans fall for that evil anti American propaganda, and America is under attack from within by Americans. Too bad, I guess all good things must come to and end and lies are the best way to light that fuse.

Oil has been very, very good to left-wing Hugo Chaves. With oil prices going up, up and up and away, every day.

All that money pouring into Venezuela must be making the working class people rich, share the wealth, right? Maybe they are all richer than us poor Americans who are over a barrel, pun intended, and need that filthy oil for our gas guzzling cars.

loke: high gas prices in itself is not the issue. it's the fact that many americans have a set budget. when gas prices jump that much it really does have a bad effect for some. i used to have about $200/month extra after paying bills, buying food, and filling my tank every week. this month i had nothing. i'm actually using credit cards to finish out this week because i have $20 in my checking. i get paid monthly, so i can't do week to week budget adjustments. but next month i'll have to scale something back to compensate for the increase in gas prices.

as far as alternative transportation...the buses here don't go to the areas i need. i would need to walk several miles between stations to switch buses, and because of the timing i would do a whole lot of sitting and waiting. last time i looked into it it was going to take me 4 hours to get to work if i took the buses. i don't think anyone i work with lives in my area so that's not an option either. it's just not worth it when i can make the trip in 30 minutes by driving.

public transit in the states sucks for the most part. i think a lot of people from europe just assume that we have something that's at least half as good as what they have. fact is in most areas there is nothing.
