All I can say, is that I live here and the oil money is not showing in the hands of the 25 plus millions of habitants of this poor country.For more than 70 years with have been blessed with the oil money, and in return with a high GDP, but you no see nothing to show for it. I guess all the money have gone to fuel governments that have dilapidated such fortunes. In who's interested? in the corrupt private and public industries and operators of the so called democratic governments and now Bolivarian revolution.
