Venezuela's Maduro considers charging citizens more for petrol

Venezuela's president hints that he could start charging for petrol, which is usually practically free for citizens.

    Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro said on Wednesday his government must begin charging more for petrol and said he had directed a team of specialists to determine what the price should be.

    The announcement follows the arrival of several tankers from Iran carrying much-needed fuel.
