The reform of the Law on Special Contribution for Windfall and Exorbitant Oil Prices was enacted on Thursday, as it was published in Venezuela's Official Gazette No. 40114.

The reform, passed at a special meeting at the National Assembly on Wednesday, provides that oil-related contributions to the National Development Fund (Fonden) shall be made whenever the price of the oil barrel exceeds USD 80, rather than USD 70, as provided before the reform. Consequently, Venezuelan state-owned oil company Pdvsa and the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) will receive a higher flow of petrodollars.

Official estimates indicate that the sale of US dollars to the central bank will spike to USD 2.47 billion this year because of the reform. Meanwhile, Pdvsa will manage additional USD 1.6 billion.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
