Ridiculous price for gasoline! Even at their income payment capacity! But if this price goes up most will find it harder to use public transport! For the casual Venezuelan a price hike is a price hike!

Canada’s gasoline price is at a limit! A limit of 40-100$ a tank <1.5$/ltr…! Which is around 400$/month for the Km my household does! Anything more is beyond a gasoline engine feasibility cost!
This limit is due to an average low middle class income and family group! Which is a big group!
