Venezuelan oil basket slumps USD 97.10
The Venezuelan crude oil shed five cents
The Ministry of Petroleum and Mining has reported that the Venezuelan oil basket slipped back five cents (0.05%) from USD 97.15 last week.
The Ministry posted on its Tweeter account that during the week the prices of hydrocarbons were virtually steady, as the market focused its attention on the agreement on the financial aid to Greece and the talks at the US Congress to prevent the so-called fiscal precipice.
To date, the Venezuelan oil basket averages USD 103.95 per barrel.
Three Venezuelans and five Trinidadians will stand trial on January 26 under the suspicion of being involved in alleged Muslim terrorist activities in Venezuela. After nine months in prison, the defendants will appear in court to face charges of terrorism brought against them by the Attorney General Office.
