Pdvsa seeks to build gas pipeline to supply Andean region
Low-income sectors are hit by shortage of domestic gas
The oil minister stated some 86 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling plants have been incorporated. However, in an attempt to improve transport, a natural gas pipeline may be built during the 2013-2019 presidential term, state-run news agency AVN cited.
For his part, Carabobo state governor Henrique Fernando Salas Römer complained to the Executive Office about reductions in gas supply across the country, particularly in low-income sectors.

President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
