All eyes on Venezuela

GasBuddy Blog -- With the passing of Hugo Chavez questions about Venezuela’s future multiply each day.

I doubt we will see much difference in price with Venezuela's declining oil production and no adequate response to international law.

They are probably in the same bracket as the little moron in Iran and the dummy in North Korea, not just as dangerous as those two idiots yet.

I have not bought Citgo (or Value Express, which the nearby Citgo changed its' name to in January) in 3-4 years, ever since I learned they're Ven oil. May not be much, but it's something. Course, if they don't sell their oil here, I'm sure China will buy it.
