Venezuela imports fuel from the USA. Lots of it.

Yes I know that title looks weird but it's not some fancy wordplay or trick of the semantics; it happens to be true that Venezuela is currently buying oodles of US fuel and importing it for local consumption. Setty has just posted on the issue and as always does a great job of breaking down the gig in words, not to mention an absolutely killer chart. Go see it all and marvel at the way Venezuela is paying The USA in order to supply its population with the world's cheapest automobile juice. In the name of Socialism. 

And seriously Setty, that chart of yours rocks.
