Venezuela is suffering through the world's highest inflation and rampant shortages of consumer goods, like milk, sugar, toilet paper — even condoms. But one thing Venezuela does have a lot of is oil. And thanks to government subsidies, it also has the cheapest gasoline in the world. But maybe not for much longer.
The "Tower of David" in downtown Caracas is called "the world's tallest squat" because thousands of people have been living in the unfinished skyscraper. Now, the government is moving people to new housing outside the city — and many squatters have mixed feelings.
Shortages of basic goods in Venezuela have made life more and more difficult for people there. They can't get basic staples like milk, cooking oil, even toilet paper. And because there's a shortage of airline tickets they can't get out of the country easily either.
