Venezuela oil minister says non-subsidized gasoline price to be 50 U.S. cents

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan Oil Minister Tareck El Aissami on Monday said motorists must pay the equivalent 50 U.S. cents per liter of gasoline after reaching their 120 liter-per-month limit for subsidized fuel.

The South American nation this week launched a new fuel distribution system, ending decades of essentially unlimited heavy subsidies amid an acute fuel shortage.
