The price should be lower. Since Venezuela is having its on problems with Food production, etc. It is nothing more than economic decision with the resource they have. Besides, it makes good PR and propaganda. And helps to maintain a specific demand for Venezuela oil. Keeping in mind Brazil and waters around the Cuba area. Will be in play. Within the region.

Not to mention. It should be at a lower rate. The logistics to transport cost is lower! And time involved is less. So, it should be cheaper....what ever the term "cheap is"!

Ah ... but in true free market, it's whatever the market will bear. But I agree ... they come up looking a lot better than our own companies.

Y'all think about it. Obamba wants to turn this into a socialist (at the least) country. He will say anything and threaten our very existence to get us to believe that everything is worse than it is now, but don't let him take away what freedom we still have or we will become his minions and not fellow citizens. We can make him stop!
