The United States of America sold the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela 5,882,000 barrels of refined products in the month of September, dwarfing the worst period of the 2002-03 oil sabotage. Here’s the breakdown by product:
There’s no way to know what Venezuela spent on that, since some of it probably came from Citgo on favorable terms. But at market price, that’s somewhat more than a half-billion dollars worth of products.
The good news is that there are no social programs or other needs in Venezuela that could have benefited more from that money.

It’s a lot, some 200,000 barrels per day, twice as much as shown for August. Clearly a consquence of the Amuay explosion.
