What makes this hilarious is that Trinidad is a Petrostate. Not as ridiculous a Petrostate as Venezuela, but still a Petrostate. In my time in Trinidad I recall that a pound of cabbage cost the same as 6 gallons of gasoline. Today, I would estimate here in the US, 5 pounds of cabbage cost the same as a gallon of gasoline.But today in Venezuela, what does gasoline cost? Ten cents a gallon? Two cents a gallon? Given the multiple exchange rates, it is difficult to quantify precisely how cheap gasoline is in Venezuela. But dirt cheap it is.
