Last Tuesday evening, while talking with friends in West Lawn, PA about the changes in gas prices around here, we actually saw the gas price on the marqee jump by 10 cents a gallon. That’s nothing, though, compared to the volatility and uncertainty in Venezuela.
“A gallon of white paint cost almost 6,000 bolívars on a recent Tuesday. At the same store on the following Friday, it cost more than 12,000 bolívars.”
