Citgo Suspends Free Heating Oil Program for Low-Income Residents

Translation: Self interest and own serious domestic economic woes have trumped propaganda value....
BOSTON — Citgo has suspended its free heating oil program for low-income residents, Citizens Energy Chairman Joseph Kennedy announced Monday.

Kennedy said the Venezuelan government's Texas-based oil subsidiary cited falling oil prices and the world economic crisis for forcing the company to reevaluate all of its social programs.

Kennedy urged those who have been helped by the program to write Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to share their stories.
