  • Maduro seeks early poll for assembly led by opposition

Drivers in Venezuela's second largest city, Maracaibo, are said to be waiting up to 24 hours and sleeping on their vehicle roofs to fill up their cars after sanctions by the Trump administration hit the state-run oil company PDVSA and caused long lines at the pumps.

Russ Dallen of the Miami-based brokerage firm Caracas Capital Markets said Sunday that Venezuela produces roughly 15 percent of capacity, as output falls.

The move comes a year after the contested re-election of embattled Maduro, locked in a struggle for power with Juan Guaido, who has declared himself interim president and is backed by more than 50 countries including the United States. Dallen says those measures are starting to cause more pain as Venezuela's refineries also collapse under decay.

Some drivers reported having to wait nearly 24 hours to fill up, with people sleeping on the top of their cars or in truck beds.

"I've spent four days trying to get gasoline", Urdaneta said.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has proposed an early elections for the National Assembly, which is headed by opposition leader Juan Guaido. However, the attempt has "failed completely", as the Venezuelan government has put it.

And the political stalemate shows few signs of drawing near its end.

President Maduro expressed his commitment to defend the popular will of the people. The UN secretary general called for dialogue to resolve the crisis. They essentially cut the government off from its Houston-based subsidiary, Citgo.

At about the same time, Mr Maduro's government and the opposition sent representatives to talks in Norway's capital Oslo which last for several days.

Across the country in Maracaibo, angry drivers lined up complaining that police were profiting off their frustrations. Drivers said officers overseeing the traces allowed some to pay the equivalent of $3.60 - better than half of the month-to-month minimum wage - to within the gash charge of right into a shorter line while others waited to occupy up their tank with subsidized gas that expenses not up to a penny.

Jose Eustaquio Perez, 65, said he took the offer.

"I'm too extinct and I'm not within the mood to wait on this long line", he said.
