Hugo "I want to be a Communist dictator like Castro" Chavez offers cheap gas to poor in U.S.

HAVANA, Cuba (Reuters) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, popular with the poor at home, offered on Tuesday to help needy Americans with cheap supplies of gasoline.

"We want to sell gasoline and heating fuel directly to poor communities in the United States," the populist leader told reporters at the end of a visit to Communist-run Cuba.

Chavez did not say how Venezuela would go about providing gasoline to poor communities. Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA owns Citgo, which has 14,000 gas stations in the United States.

What is he going to do, hand out cards to the poor in order to give them a discount when they buy gas?

But it's obvious why he's doing this. He wants to curry favor with the masses (of idiots) here in America that think Pres. Bush has something to do with the price of gas and wants to be seen as a hero by showing he is more powerful than Pres. Bush and can offer them cheap gas.

One things for sure though, I won't be buy gas from Citgo anymore.........
