The Venezuelan oil basket dropped 0.5% by the end of this week, at USD 95.86 per barrel, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mining informed. This is the fourth consecutive week Venezuelan oil prices fall.

The average price of oil in 2012 is USD 104.24 per barrel.

The ministry explained, "Price performance of main oil baskets' was mixed this week amid geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and contradictory news on the global economy."

This week, the OPEC oil basket rebounded USD 1.04 and ended at USD 106.24 per barrel; Brent crude oil rose USD 1.65 reaching the USD 109.46 floor per barrel while the WTI suffered a USD 0.12 setback and ended at USD 85.76 per barrel.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
