According to La Prensa de Lara, inhabitants of the Morán, Crespo, Palavecino, Andrés Eloy Blanco, Torres, Simón Planas, Jiménez and Urdaneta municipalities do not receive fuel on a regular basis because the distribution is done in an “anarchic” manner.
The governor of the state of Lara, Adolfo Pereira, made a call for calm to the population in the face of social discontent that has caused the shortage of gasoline in the entity, evidenced in the kilometer-long queues at Lara’s service stations.
Without specifying specific information, he maintained that the distribution of gasoline and diesel will improve, although “he does not know when.”
«We depend on national distribution. The perspective is that it should improve, but we don’t know when, because we depend on the fuel that comes from PDVSA”, he explained.
He expanded that the military patrols will continue, in which the Integral Defense Operational Zone (ZODI) of Lara participates, as long as the queues continue in the entity.
On the other hand, he clarified that the distribution of fuel has not stopped at any time, but that the number of tankers that PDVSA sends is not enough to cover the demand. In addition, the amounts they receive are distributed “equitably” for all municipalities.
«We will always receive fuel and diesel. We have taken care of the equitable distribution for the municipalities. We have kept it rotating so that everyone has the supply. 25, 20 tankers arrive, the minimum that arrives is 10, but we have never stopped receiving fuel for the state of Lara,” he declared.
The affirmations about the equitable distribution differ with reports originated from the Lara media, since The Press maintains that inhabitants of the Morán, Crespo, Palavecino, Andrés Eloy Blanco, Torres, Simón Planas, Jiménez and Urdaneta municipalities do not receive fuel on a regular basis because the distribution is done in an “anarchic” manner.
The gasoline shortage crisis is spreading throughout the interior of the country and the forecast for the coming weeks is not very hopeful.
According to the general secretary of the Falcón State Oil and Gas Workers Union, Iván Freites, the shortage will worsen due to failures in the Paraguaná Refining Complex (CRP).
«The catalytic plant is in charge of refining oil and producing catalytic naphtha, an essential component to produce gasoline. Of a liter of gasoline, 50% is catalytic naphtha », he explained.
