It does seem to be the new economic plan. First you need to eliminate your competion or get govt. to stifle them then you can produce less and charge more. Overhead goes down....profit stays same or increases.
We as citizens can try to boycott them or complain but the only one that can wield the heavy club is our elected represetatives of the Republic and the president....heard any concerns from them lately about high prices? And where are they?
Remember, Chavez and the nasty democracy of Venezuela are dispised by the first world because he holds a big club and isn't afraid to whack the folks trying to make a buck off the gas station when he wants the people to only pay 19 cents!!

I knew if it were longer than a text message, you wouldn't be able to pay attention.
