This is the case of the Venezuelan basic industries in Guayana, northeast Venezuela, whose prices have been increased by 46.5%.

Entrepreneurs confirmed that Sidor adjusted prices up. They added that the price of the products paid prior to the devaluation but that have not been dispatched shall be recalculated based on the new forex rate, VEB 6.30 per US dollar.

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.
