Charity from Venezuela

I suppose this fits right in with the rest of the up-is-downism that's become reality with Bush at the helm:

Venezuela will soon begin selling heating oil to the poor at discount prices to communities in Boston and New York City, following up on a promise by President Hugo Chavez to help poor Americans cut energy costs, Venezuela's state oil company announced.

Citgo, a subsidiary of Venezuela's state-owned oil company, will offer fuel at discounted rates in Boston as early as this week, said a statement posted Friday on the company's website.

"The first phase of the program, in Boston, will offer up to 4.5 million litres of heating oil at accessible rates, representing $10 million US in savings for those sectors," the statement read.
