Caracas, June 2, 2020.-   The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro took stock of the start of the Fuel Service Normalization and Regularization Plan that began this Monday, June 1, throughout the national territory, after Venezuela was in 120 days of crisis due to the lack of gasoline.

During the Presidential Commission Meeting, which took place at the Miraflores Palace, in the city of Caracas, the Prime Minister stressed that "thanks to PDVSA workers, workers, professionals, technicians, scientists, there was a combination of efforts that served to recover the country's productive capacity to guarantee gasoline ”.

On the first day of execution of the Fuel Service Normalization and Regularization Plan, 634 thousand vehicles were equipped with gasoline. “Today we distribute 125 thousand barrels of gasoline, we are prepared for that and for more. The machinery of the trucks is being fine-tuned so that they reach the furthest from Venezuela, ”said Maduro.

Maduro emphasized that through this gasoline distribution system “we are going to control bachaquerismo, it is one of the ways of self-control. Zero tolerance against those who take advantage of the people's needs. In the future, everyone must be enrolled in the Homeland System, because the time will come when direct subsidies will be given from there. ”

For his part, the People's Power Minister for Petroleum, Tareck El Aissami reiterated that “we celebrate together with the people having liberated the fuel stations from the mafias from the corruption of Bachaquerismo and placing them at the people's command. In addition, President, the decision that you have taken to directly subsidize each Venezuelan family, I believe that it is a policy that marks the beginning of a timely and fair scheme, ”he said.

“On behalf of all PDVSA workers, we want to offer you our commitment, together with you (President Nicolás Maduro) to continue improving and advancing. It is a victory that illuminates the future horizon of what will be the new fuel distribution and marketing scheme for the entire country.
