Cheap Venezuelan Oil Will be Heating up a few Tenements in the Bronx

U.S. oil corporations were quick to gouge consumers after the disastrous aftermath of Katrina. Free markets at their best--the plutocracy profited once more. The other approach is to use resources in common for the benefit of all. Hugo Chavez's program to benefit the poor in select U.S. cities is already making an impact, and provide a way for the U.S. working class to see the other way in action. This quote is great:

“To those who say this is to score political points,” Representative Jose E. Serrano (D-N.Y.) told a shivering crowd when the first oil arrived, “I invite any American corporation that wants to score points with my community to start this afternoon.”
